Students and faculty said goodbye to Dan Buehner Wednesday during a memorial service at the W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse on the Valley City State University campus. Buehner, 23, who died in a rafting accident Monday, was a senior business major at VCSU and a catcher for the VCSU baseball team.
During the service, school officials, including VCSU Baseball Coach Casey Olney, along with Buehner's teammates, friends and classmates reminisced about the young man, sharing prayers, tears and even some laughter. Many of the first responders who spent hours searching for the missing student attended also.
After the service, a student gathering was held at the VCSU Student Center.
