A campus memorial service celebrating the life of Baylor University junior Chase Loren Gray will be held at 8 p.m. Monday, Dec. 9, at Miller Chapel.

Gray, 20, died Wednesday, Nov. 27, in a private plane crash near McAlester, Okla., as his family traveled to Missouri for the Thanksgiving holidays. His father and mother, William and Kathy Gray, brother Chad and sister Brooke also were killed in the accident.

Dr. Todd L. Lake, dean for university ministries, will lead the service. Gray's roommates and friends, including some who have known him since grade school, will speak at the memorial. The Baylor Religious Hour (BRH) choir will be among those providing special music.

Gray was born Dec. 15, 1981. He graduated from Trinity Christian Academy near Dallas and was pursuing a bachelor's of business administration degree in accounting at Baylor. He was a member of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity and attended University Baptist Church in Waco. His sister, Brooke, was planning to join him at Baylor in the fall.
