A service for Lawrence Hong, 27, is set for 1:30 p.m. MT at the Centre Street Church in northeast Calgary.
Calgary Transit is making arrangements for a special bus service to the funeral because Hong — who was soon to graduate from the urban studies program at the University of Calgary — was such a strong supporter of sustainable transportation.
He was killed at a party in Brentwood that was marking the end of the university semester on April 15 along with Joshua Hunter, 23, Kaitlin Perras, 23, Zackariah Rathwell, 21, and Jordan Segura, 22.
Matthew de Grood, 22, is charged with five counts of first-degree murder. He has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric examination to determine if he is fit to stand trial.
