A funeral is planned at Corunna High School for a 20-year-old graduate who was killed while serving in Afghanistan. His body is scheduled to arrive in Mid-Michigan on Thursday afternoon on the property of Bishop Airport.
The body of Army Pfc. Shane Cantu of Corunna arrived at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware last week, with a military honor guard on hand to carry the flag-draped coffin.
Visitation is 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Nelson-House Funeral Home in Owosso. The service is 5 p.m. Monday at the school's Nick Annese Field.
Details of the funeral service were reported Wednesday by The Flint Journal. Cantu's ex-football coach has said he died Aug. 28 after insurgents threw an explosive over a base wall.
Cantu had been stationed in Germany and Italy before transferring to Afghanistan a month before he was killed.
