Sophomore dies Jan. 2


Miami University sophomore Daniel Ferraro, 19, died Wednesday, Jan. 2, in an accident in West Chester. Ferraro was a psychology major and ROTC member. His father, Tony, is the university's energy management engineer.

Visitation for Ferraro will be 4-8 p.m. Sunday, January 6, at Lakota Christian Church, 5962 Hamilton-Mason Road, Liberty Township. A memorial service will be 10 a.m. Monday, January 7, at the church.

Boy Scout Troop 974 has established the Daniel Ferraro Memorial Fund with Fifth Third Bank to provide money to help finance Eagle Scout projects in memory of Ferraro, an Eagle Scout who strongly believed in community service. His family hopes gifts in his memory can support community service from other Scouts on their way to becoming Eagles.

People can go to any Fifth Third Bank and give them the fund's name to contribute.
