Riverview, Florida - A candlelight vigil is being held for 14-year-old Andrew Joseph III on Thursday, February 13 at 7 p.m. at the Brandon Ravens football field at 5417 Providence Road in Riverview.
Joseph died on Friday when he was hit by an SUV, after he reportedly tried to run across Interstate 4. The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says a few hours before it happened, their deputies kicked him out of the Florida State Fair for disorderly conduct.
A wake is being held for Andrew on Friday from 5 p.m. - 9 p.m. at Wilson's Funeral home in Tampa. It is located at 3000 North 29th St. The funeral is being held on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in Valrico at St. Stephen Catholic Church at 5049 Bell Shoals Road.
Joseph will be buried in his cap and gown. He was gearing up to graduate from the 8th grade from St. Stephen Catholic School where on Wednesday morning, the school's flag had been lowered.
A fund is being set up for the family to accept donations, because they are from New Orleans and are planning services not only in the Bay area, but there as well.
If you'd like to contribute to the Brandon Ravens Football League trust fund you may do so at any SunTrust bank branch in care of Andrew Joseph.
