Touching Ceremony In Memory Of Hall Football Player

Posted by wlpo on August 10, 2012

Hundreds wore red and white, carried signs and balloons in remembering a Spring Valley teen that those who knew him say he was caring, smart and loving.

A memorial walk Friday night to the home of 17-year old Daniel Lule drew a huge crowd that covered a few blocks.  People of all ages were there to show support to Lule’s family as they grieve his shocking death on Wednesday.

Lule’s aunt Lupe Puente drove from California once she heard her nephew had died.  She spoke on behalf of the family saying it was a great gesture and they expected maybe 40 to 60 people, not well over a thousand. Puente says the support will not be forgotten.

Many in the huge crowd placed balloons, cards, and stuffed animals in the yard of the Lule’s.  Daniel’s older brother David wrapped up the ceremony by thanking the crowd for its emotional support and letting them know they were all invited to his brother’s services.

You can hear details of Daniel Lule’s services on AM 1220 WLPO’s In Memoriam.
