The Naval Academy will hold a funeral Friday for Midshipman Max Allen, who was found dead in College Creek on Feb. 16 after his SUV crashed into the water. Allen's funeral will be held at noon in the Main Chapel, followed by an on-foot procession to his burial at the Naval Academy Cemetery.

A passerby noticed a missing part of the pillar-and-chain fence along the creek by Nimitz Library on Feb. 16. Investigators found Allen's SUV in the water and divers recovered his body from the water.

Allen was an oceanography major who was scheduled to graduate in May and become a Naval flight officer. He played club soccer and was a member of the Italian-American and Japanese-American clubs.
