Funeral services Tuesday for Chris Lenzen
BALLWIN, MO (KTVI)– Funeral services for Chris Lenzen are set for 10 a.m. Tuesday at Ascension Catholic Church located at 230 Santa Maria Drive in Chesterfield. Hundreds gathered at the Schrader Funeral Home in Ballwin Monday night to say goodbye the 18-year-old.
Some mourners waited in line for more than 4 hours. Lenzen is one of three teenagers killed in an accident last Thursday while driving on a road in Wildwood. The teens died after their convertible went off of the road and crashed into the deck of a home.
Friends Alec Lage and Kim Colt say Chris was a fun loving guy who had lots of friends. They also say losing their Marquette classmate is still hard to process.
“Everyone loved him at Marquette he was involved in so many things in baseball, basketball he was a large part of our school. He walked down the hallways everyone knew who he was,” said Lage.
“He`s looking down on us now and Chris would want to keep him in our hearts and he would lookout for us even now,” said Colt.
The lone survivor 18-year-old Olivia Dames had only minor injuries and was one of the speakers at today’s funeral services. Friends also say that Lenzen was set to start at Mizzou this week and had plans to major in business.
