Visitation and memorial services will take place this weekend for Lake Mills Fire Department Capt. Christopher Truman, who was killed in a New Year’s Eve crash while helping a motorist on the Beltline.

Lake Mills Fire Department spokesman Daniel Drescher said the public is invited to the visitation and services at Lake Mills High School.

The first visitation will be from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday with an emergency services fly-by salute over the school at 5 p.m.

Sunday’s visitation will be from 2 to 3 p.m., with a memorial service from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Lake Mills High School is at 615 Catlin Drive on the city’s South Side.

Truman, 46, had stopped to help a motorist who crashed on the Beltline during a snowstorm. He was struck by a car while outside of his own car. He died at a local hospital.

Samuel Cremers, the driver of the car who hit Truman, was arrested on a tentative charge of homicide by drunken driving.
