Memorial Service Held For UCLA Receiver Nick Pasquale
SAN CLEMENTE (CBSLA.com) — A memorial service was held Sunday for UCLA receiver Nick Pasquale, who was struck and killed by a car last weekend.
The 4 p.m. service for the 20-year-old Pasquale was held at San Clemente Presbyterian Church located at 119 Avenida De La Estrella.
Pasquale’s UCLA playing career consisted of one key play in the season opening victory over Nevada at the Rose Bowl.
In UCLA’s first game since his death on Saturday, a moment of silence was observed before the nationally televised game at Lincoln, Neb.
UCLA’s players and coaches affixed a patch with his jersey number, No. 36, to their attire. Their opponent, the Nebraska Huskers, similarly honored Pasquale with helmet decals.
Pasquale was fatally struck by a car about 1:30 a.m. on Sept. 8, on Camino de Dos Mares west of Calle Nuevo in San Clemente, Orange County sheriff’s Lt. Jeff Hallock said.
Hallock said the motorist, who struck Pasquale, remained at the scene and was not charged with any crime or infraction.
