Services for Cristopher Guerrero, who was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver Sunday near Cal Poly Pomona, have been set.
The funeral for the 36-year-old Diamond Bar man will be held Nov. 8 at 3 p.m. in Church of Our Heritage at Forest Lawn Covina Hills, 21300 Via Verde Drive, Covina.
Guerrero was walking westbound in
the right lane of West Temple Avenue and Campus Drive around 5:15
a.m. when he was struck by a Chevy truck or SUV also going westbound, City News Service reported. The driver of that truck or SUV has not been found.
Cris' dad Ed Guerrero shared some thoughts about his son, who was born in Hacienda Heights.
"We lost a great
man on Sunday Oct. 27, my son Cristopher Edward Guerrero," he said. "He will be
severely missed by all that knew and loved him...wife
Janeth...family...friends. He was only 36 years...he always called me
his hero, but the fact is he was my hero and best friend and I can never
repay him for all the love that he gave to me and others, his spirit
will live forever in all of us."
Investigators continue to gather evidence in the case. Anyone who has any information is asked to call the California Highway Patrol at 626-338-1164
