Teen’s funeral set
A funeral is planned Tuesday for a Lake Stevens boy who was struck and killed by a car last week. The viewing for William L. Arroyo-Ramirez, 17, is set for 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at St. Mary of the Valley Catholic Church at 601 W. Columbia St., Monroe. Mass begins at 5:30 p.m.
A spaghetti feed fundraiser over the weekend raised more than $4,000 for the boy’s family. The Granite Falls Eagles club also is accepting donations.
“The family appreciates all the support from the fundraiser and welcomes any and all to attend the funeral,” the school district reported Monday. The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office released the boy’s last name as Arroyo-Ramirez, though school district records list him as William Ramirez.
