Students, family and faculty will hold a candlelight vigil in honor of architecture sophomore Trevor Anthony Macias at 7 p.m. today in the mall. The vigil will provide 50 candles to those in attendance.
An alleged drunk driver hit 24-year-old Macias Feb. 13 while he was changing a tire on the side of Highway 90, according to human services sophomore Chris Lopez. He died Feb. 14 at University Hospital.
Police arrested Juan Felipe Ortiz and charged him with Intoxication Manslaughter.
Lopez, who worked with Macias in the office of student life, has lost a brother to drunk driving, and said the loss affects everyone.
“He was a treasured member of this college, a hard worker, great sense of humor and he’s gonna be missed,” Lopez said.
Macias, who worked as a work-study administration clerk for student life, was buried Monday at Mission Burial Park.
