21-year-old Trevor Wehner, a student at Northern Illinois University, was on his first day of work at an Aurora manufacturing plant when a gunman opened fire, killing him and four others.
Wehner was a senior at NIU, studying Human Resources and Business.
A visitiation will be held from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, February 20th at the Gabel-Dunn Funeral Home, 333 W. Church Street in Sheridan.
Following the service, visitors are invited to the Sheridan Fire Department for a “celebration of Trevor’s life.”
The New York Post reported that Wehner was called into a meeting with supervisors at the Henry Pratt company on Friday, February 15th, during which they intended to fire a worker.
Wehner’s family friend, Cindy Lou, said on Facebook that he “sat in and observed the termination” of employee Gary Martin, who then pulled out a Smith & Wesson revolver and killed Wehner and two other people in the room, before shooting and killing two other employees nearby.
The other victims were Clayton Parks, Russell Beyer, Vicente Juarez, and Josh Pinkard.
Martin also shot and wounded five police officers before he was killed in a firefight with police.
The officers are expected to survive.
