Reflecting on Christopher Ackley's life

This morning's Ithaca Journal takes a closer look at Christopher Ackley's accomplishments as well as community reaction to his sudden death in an accident Tuesday. Ackley, a junior at Dryden High School, had received awards from BOCES and the Diocese of Rochester, and was co-captain of the swim team, and an Eagle Scout.

Viewing hours will be from 4:00pm to 9:00pm Friday at Perkins Funeral Home, with a funeral Mass on Saturday at 11:00am at Holy Cross Church. The school district will also hold a memorial service on Monday at 1:00pm.
