ORINDA -- A memorial service for Brandon Huang, a 20-year-old Orinda man found dead outside his Cal-Poly residence hall in San Luis Obispo Feb. 9, will be held Saturday at Hull's Walnut Creek Chapel, 1139 Saranap Ave. in Walnut Creek.
Huang was found outside the Poly Canyon Village residence hall where he lived while attending Cal-Poly, after witnesses said he had been having problems breathing after attending a house party. He died the next morning at a local hospital.
The San Luis Obispo County coroner has said it could take six to eight more weeks for results of toxicology tests following an autopsy to come back.
Huang was a graduate of Miramonte High School, where he was a varsity basketball player. He was a second-year biology major at Cal-Poly.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made in Brandon's name to a Cal Poly Biology Department Scholarship Fund. Checks can be mailed to Cal Poly University Advancement, Attn: Scholarship Program, San Luis Obispo, CA 93407-0443.
