Richard Marsh, 16, a former student in the Falls Church school system, died suddenly last weekend. A memorial service will be held Sunday, Nov. 20, at George Mason High School from 2 to 5 p.m.

According to George Mason High School Principal Ty Byrd, contributions in lieu of flowers are being accepted by the Hoops for Youth Foundation, 10623 Jones St., Suite 101-A, Fairfax, Va 22030.
