Candlelight Vigil For Will Denton Set For Thursday At Old Main

Members of Alpha Tau Omega fraternity will hold a candlelight vigil for Will Denton at 5 p.m. Thursday, January 18 on the steps of Old Main.

“The vigil is open to everyone as Will has touched the hearts of students across various communities,” ATO President Tanner Gattuso said via email.

Denton was found dead by university police in his Eastview Terrace single dorm room Monday, January 8. Police were conducting a wellness check at the request of Denton’s parents. Denton’s cause of death is still unknown at this time.

ATO alumni funded buses for the chapter to travel to North Carolina for Denton’s services on Saturday, January 13, according to ATO National Fraternity CEO Wynn Smiley. The Dentons requested ATO brothers sit with the family.

In lieu of flowers, the family is asking those who wish to honor his memory to make a memorial gift to THON. You can donate to THON on the organization’s website or by mailing a check to THON, Attn: Finance, 227D HUB, University Park, PA, 16802.
