Three More Umpqua Shooting Victims Remembered

Michael Sullivan, The News-Review

Rebecka Carnes, Quinn Cooper and Lucas Eibel were memorialized in separate services Saturday in Myrtle Creek and Roseburg.

The 18-year-olds were shot dead in class on October 1 at Umpqua Community College.

As hundreds of mourners gathered inside a church to remember Lucas Eibel, a row of flags flapped in a stiff breeze outside. Eibel enjoyed hiking, playing video games and reading.

Across town Quinn Cooper was being remembered. Larry McCraw spoke on behalf of Cooper’s family outside the church.

McCraw: “He was a computer geek and we loved him being that way. He loved big band music and he loved to dance and he had a crazy, quirky kind of humor and stuff and loved his mom and his brother a ton.”

In Myrtle Creek, friends and family celebrated the life of Rebecka Carnes. She had just started classes at the college with the goal of becoming a dental assistant.

Classes will resume at Umpqua Community College on Monday. Oregon Governor Kate Brown will be among those welcoming students back to campus.
