Christopher Weigl to be Remembered Sunday

Memorial service will be held in Holliston


A memorial service for graduate student Christopher Weigl (COM’13), who died last Thursday when his bicycle collided with a tractor-trailer at the corner of Commonwealth Avenue and St. Paul Street, will be held on Sunday, December 16, at 2 p.m. at the First Congregational Church in Holliston, 725 Washington St. Visitation will be on Saturday, December 15, from 3 to 7:30 p.m. at the Chesmore Funeral Home of Holliston, 854 Washington St., Route 16.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Boston University College of Communication, and designated for the Christopher Weigl Memorial Fund. The fund is intended to create opportunities for photojournalism students to “continue Christopher’s work,” helping them to discover the wonder of creating the pictures that tell a story. Donations can be made here.
