BOSTON (AP) -- Funeral arrangements have been set for a man who died over the weekend after diving off a building into Nantucket Harbor hours after fundraising for a Lou Gehrig’s disease charity in honor of his friend who inspired the ice-bucket challenge.
The wake for Corey Griffin, 27, will be from 2 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday at St. Anthony’s Roman Catholic Church in Cohasset, according to family spokesman Stephen Greeley. The funeral service will be Thursday at 11 a.m., also at St. Anthony’s.
Greeley, whose son grew up with Griffin, described him an energetic and charismatic booster for a number of local charities when not working as Director of Strategic Initiatives at RANE, a finance company in New York. Greeley said Griffin most recently raised $150,000 for the charity benefiting Peter Frates, a former Boston College classmate suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease.
