Gleason Visitation Today; Families Thank Community

Friends and family will have the opportunity to pay their respects to Bobby Gleason today at Chapman's Mortuary. A visitation is scheduled for 4pm to 9pm this evening. His funeral is set for Tuesday morning.

It has been one week now since five graduates from Huntington High School got into a car accident in Opp, Alabama on their way back from a vacation.

Chris Withers died in the accident. Bobby Gleason made it home to Huntington before he passed away Friday. The three other young men in the accident are recovering.

Saturday afternoon, only hours after their son passed away, the Gleason family held an impromptu news conference in their front lawn. Dozens of friends came out to support the families. The Withers family joined them.

They shared memories of the young men and photos. They thanked the community for sending their best wishes and keeping Bobby and Chris in their thoughts and prayers.
