BEAVERTON, Ore. - Hundreds of loved ones are remembering the 19-year-old student killed by a gunman at a small Seattle college earlier this month as a profound thinker who loved to dance.
The Oregonian reports that at Portland-area native Paul Lee's memorial service Sunday, Seattle Pacific University President Dan Martin also officially announced the Paul Lee Foundation. It will seek to boost resources for those with mental illness.
The attorney for Aaron Ybarra, who's charged with murder in the June 6 shooting that injured two, has said Ybarra has a history of mental health issues.
At a church in Beaverton, Martin read tributes from professors and students, who said Lee was laid-back, complex and often seen dancing.
Lee's older brother, Albert, said at the service that the 19-year-old was genuine and compassionate and taught him "love can comfort all."
