Loved ones and classmates gathered Friday morning to remember David Widzinski, who passed away in his sleep sometime Sunday night into Monday morning.
David, 16, was a sophomore at Detroit Catholic Central High School in Novi and lived in Northville.
A viewing was held at 9 a.m. Friday, followed by a funeral at 10 a.m. at Catholic Central.
David was a linebacker for the CC football team. He is survived by his parents, Paul and Barbara; his sister, Emily; and his brother, Stephen. He is preceded in death by his sister, Kristina Ruth.
The cause of death is still unknown.
The family has set up a memorial scholarship fund for David that will benefit future Shamrocks who are not able to afford tuition. Checks may be made payable to Catholic Central High School and dropped off in the Advancement Office at CC, or sent to:
