Funeral Set for Coach’s Infant Son
MARSHALL (AP) – A funeral is set for the 5-month-old son of Southwest Minnesota State men’s basketball coach Brad Bigler and his wife Heather.
Services for Drake Bigler will be held at 1 p.m. Monday at First Lutheran Church in Marshall.
The boy was killed Saturday when a pickup collided head-on with an SUV carrying Bigler family members.
Brad Bigler’s surgeon says the coach continues to improve. His wife’s 74-old-grandmother, Sharon Schuler, also is making progress.
The pickup driver, 38-year-old Dana Schoen of Starbuck, faces three criminal vehicular homicide or operation charges. The complaint says Schoen had a blood-alcohol content of 0.351 percent – more than four times Minnesota’s legal limit of 0.08 percent.
Schoen was released from jail after making bail Tuesday. A court hearing is set for October 17th.
