A public celebration of life for Deputy U.S. Marshal Chase White, who was slain last week in the line of duty, will be held Friday morning at the Tucson Convention Center.

Everyone attending should be seated by 9 a.m., and the service will start at 9:30 at the Tucson Convention Center, 260 S. Church Avenue.  

Also, there will be a public viewing on Thursday, from 4 to 8 p.m., at the Adair Avalon Funeral Chapel, 8090 N. Northern Avenue, Oro Valley.

White, 41, was fatally shot Thursday night in Tucson while helping to serve a felony arrest warrant on Ryan Schlesinger, 26, who is accused of killing him.

White had worked for the Marshals Service since 2015 and was also an Air Force reservist who had been scheduled to deploy just a few days after his death.

He leaves behind a wife and four children.
