Visitation and funeral arrangements for Taylor student John Courtney (Tripp) Gorman, III , the Taylor University student who died Tuesday evening, have been completed. Calling hours will be Saturday, 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. and funeral services will be Sunday at 3:00 p.m. at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 1100 W. Jeffras Ave., Marion.

Tripp was a commuter student living in Marion and was a resident at Morris Hall last year. According to the Grant County Sherriff’s Department, Tripp passed away at Marion General Hospital from injuries suffered in an accident in his home.

“We know that situations like this are very difficult and if any of our students need assistance in processing their grief, we encourage them to connect with the counseling center or residence life staff,” said Dr. Skip Trudeau, Dean of Students at Taylor. “We continue to be in prayer for Tripp’s family, loved ones and friends in the days, weeks and months to come.”
