LAGRANDE, Ore. (AP) — A memorial service has been scheduled for an Oregon man who was killed last week while walking across the country to raise awareness about bullying.
The service to honor 48-year-old Joseph Bell of La Grande, Ore., will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday at Gilbert Event Center on the Eastern Oregon University campus in La Grande.
Bell died Wednesday after being struck along a two-lane highway in a rural area of eastern Colorado. Investigators believe the driver fell asleep.
Bell's 15-year-old son, Jadin, died in February after hanging himself in a schoolyard. He had reported being bullied.
Bell began his walk in April and planned to finish in New York City.
A family friend, Bud Hill, tells the Oregonian (http://is.gd/cBE7Wn ) that the service is open to the public.
