BEAVERTON, Ore. (AP) - Hundreds of loved ones are remembering the 19-year-old student killed by a gunman at a small Seattle college earlier this month as a profound thinker who loved to dance.

At Portland-area native Paul Lee’s memorial service Sunday, Seattle Pacific University President Dan Martin also officially announced the Paul Lee Foundation, The Oregonian reported (https://bit.ly/1kESgdu ). It will seek to boost resources for those with mental illness.

The attorney for Aaron Ybarra, who’s charged with murder in the June 6 shooting that injured two, has said Ybarra has a history of mental health issues.

At a church in Beaverton, Oregon, Martin read tributes from professors and students, who said Lee was laid-back, complex and often seen dancing.

Lee’s older brother, Albert, said at the service that the 19-year-old was genuine and compassionate and taught him “love can comfort all.”
