Funeral Set For Minn. Coach’s Infant Son

View Comments

MARSHALL, Minn. (AP) — A funeral is set for the 5-month-old son of Southwest Minnesota State men’s basketball coach Brad Bigler and his wife Heather.

Services for Drake Bigler will be held at 1 p.m. Monday at First Lutheran Church in Marshall.

The boy was killed Saturday when a pickup collided head-on with an SUV carrying Bigler family members.

Brad Bigler’s surgeon says the coach continues to improve. His wife’s 74-old-grandmother, Sharon Schuler, also is making progress.

The pickup driver, 38-year-old Dana Schoen of Starbuck, faces three criminal vehicular homicide or operation charges. The complaint says Schoen had a blood-alcohol content of 0.351 percent — more than four times Minnesota’s legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Schoen was released from jail after making bail Tuesday. A court hearing is set for Oct. 17.
