Funeral arrangements for young drowning victim announced
Two public visitations will be held Tuesday for Olisadike "Oli" Okoye, the nine-year-old boy who died last week in the Rideau River near Strathcona Park.
The first visitation will take place at Hulse, Playfair and McGarry's main chapel, located at 315 McLeod St., from noon to 4 p.m. The second is scheduled to go from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The McGarry family stepped in and offered to pay for the funeral after Okoye's family asked for the community's help to fund it.
A funeral mass will take place Wednesday at St. Joseph's Cathedral on Wilbrod St. starting at 11 a.m.
