Sam Strahan’s memorial service will be held on Saturday and is open to the public, according to a news release from the family.

Strahan was shot and killed by a fellow Freeman High School classmate on Sept. 13.

The Strahan family invites the public to attend the service. The service will start at 2 p.m. in the University High School gym.

Sam’s father, Scott Strahan, died on June 18 when he was crushed beneath a motor home he was working on.

“The family is so appreciative of the outpouring of love from so many people throughout this community,” a news release stated. “We hope everyone can join them for this celebration.”
