Service Planned For Former Grand Valley State QB

BRIGHTON, Mich. (AP) — A service is planned for a Michigan man who played Division II football and was one of the most successful quarterbacks in college history.

A funeral Mass for Cullen Finnerty is set for 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Brighton, with visitation Monday at the church.

Finnerty’s body was discovered this week in woods in western Michigan, 65 miles north of Grand Rapids, following a search by dozens of people, including former teammates, coaches and current players at Grand Valley State University in Allendale.

The 30-year-old was with his relatives on a holiday weekend at a cottage in Lake County’s Webber Township. He disappeared Sunday while fishing a river separately from other relatives. Finnerty was a star at Brighton High School, about 35 miles northwest of Detroit.
