A memorial event for Lance Ross, owner of the Freight Station in Johnstown, will be held April 22 in order to celebrate his life and legacy, according to a Facebook post by the Freight Station.
Ross’s death was ruled a homicide after he was found inside the building in February and had suffered multiple blunt force trauma injuries that Cambria County Coroner Jeff Lees said was the result of a “violent assault”.
The event will feature bands such as Desperados, This Indecision and Octane, as well as a flame-throwing act by the group Flo N’at.
Belly Buster’s food truck will also be at the event for food purchases.
The deck will open at 1 p.m. with the first band starting at 2 p.m. and the cost is a $10 donation at the door.
A fundraiser is also being held in order to raise money for the celebration as well as to contribute towards the reward being offered for any information that leads to an arrest in the investigation of Ross’s death.
The Freight Station also announced in another Facebook post Saturday that the restaurant will be put up for sale and that more information will be available in the coming weeks.
