It looks to be a lovely tribute for a student who lost his life too soon.

The University of Michigan-Flint's Center for Gender and Sexuality is holding a "celebration of life" for Kevin Bacon, who was studying psychology at the university when he was brutally murdered on Christmas Eve last year.

The event is open to the entire community and starts at 5:30 PM tonight. It will be held at 213 UCEN at the downtown Flint campus. Bacon served as a peer educator for the Center for Gender and Sexuality at the university before his death.

Bacon was also a graduate of Swartz Creek High School and a member of the marching band; he graduated as one of the top ten in his class in 2013.
