Ke’Arre Stewart was being laid to rest Monday in Waco. A service is scheduled at Carver Park Baptist Church, followed by internment at Oakwood Cemetery.

A memorial service for Stewart, who died in the Nov. 27 gunfire, will be held Dec. 13 at the Bellmead Civic Center.

The 29-year-old Waco native was among three people killed when a gunman opened fire at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Nine other people were wounded. The suspect remains in custody.

Stewart graduated from Waco’s La Vega High School in 2004. He served in Iraq and was later stationed in Colorado, where Stewart remained after leaving the Army.
