A celebration of the life of Warren Roy Staats, 16, will be held at the Aurora Heights Assembly of God Church on McGahan Street in Nikiski at 2 p.m. Thursday. Pastor Rufus Tallent will officiate.
Staats died of injuries resulting from a vehicle-bicycle accident early Friday morning that also claimed the life of Robert Lawrence Borgen III, 15. Staats' mother, Kathryn Hutchison, of Kalamath, Wash., and his father, Laryfred Staats, of Nikiski, donated their son's organs so other people might have a chance to live.
Immediately following the memorial service, family and friends may gather at the church fellowship hall to share stories, look at photographs and have refreshments.
Staats is survived by his 9-year-old brother, Eric Hutchison; grandfather, Warren Robert Staats of Kamai, Idaho; grandmother, Jeri Staats of Pascoe, Wash.; and numerous uncles, aunts and cousins.
