Julien Hug’s friends, family and well-wishers will say goodbye to him Friday at a public memorial service.
The Bachelorette contestant, 35, died last week from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Everyone is welcome at the service, where a crowd of 700 or more people is expected, reports the La Jolla Light.
