Memorial Service Scheduled for Lambda Chi Alpha Members

The University of Maine Interfraternity and Panhellenic councils, in conjunction with the UMaine chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha, will hold a memorial service at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 27 for the three fraternity members killed earlier this month in a plane crash at Knox County Regional Airport in Owls Head, Maine.

Tuesday’s memorial service will be held in Hauck Auditorium. Three members of Lambda Chi Alpha will eulogize the two UMaine students — David Cheney and Marcelo Rugini — and 2011 alumnus William “B.J.” Hannigan III. Among those also expected to offer remarks will be a representative of UMaine’s Greek community and Robert Dana, UMaine vice president for student affairs and dean of students.

The memorial service will be followed by a short candlelight vigil on the Mall at the steps of Fogler Library.

The three fraternity members were killed Nov. 16 when their single-engine plane crashed.

David Cheney, 22, of Beverly, Mass., was a business major and president of Lambda Chi Alpha.

Marcelo Rugini, 24, a foreign exchange student who lived in Nobleboro, Maine, and was from Muliterno, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, was an economics major.

William “B.J.” Hannigan III, 24, of South Portland, Maine, graduated from UMaine in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering.
