Shilling and three other classmates were shot and killed on Nov. 30. He was 17.

His family, friends and community gathered for a funeral Thursday evening to remember his life.

The senior was co-captain of his school’s bowling team. His obituary said he burned brighter and exuded more energy than the average person, and left his mark on so many people.

Shilling is survived by his parents and two brothers.

He will also be remembered for giving a generous gift to others: He was declared legally dead the day after the shooting, but his parents kept him on life support for two more days so that his organs could be donated.
