Friends and family gathered for a memorial service on Tuesday to honor Frank Kohler, a Zelienople native killed in last week's shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington.

The service had been scheduled at the English Evangelical Lutheran Church in Zelienople but was moved to the auditorium of Seneca Valley Intermediate High School because a large crowd was expected.

Kohler, 50, of Tall Timbers, Md., was one of 12 victims killed during the shooting rampage last week at the Navy Yard. He was a government support specialist for more than 27 years.

Kohler was a 1980 graduate of Seneca Valley High School and earned a bachelor's degree in computer science from Slippery Rock University in 1985.
