JONESBORO, AR - Funeral services are set for Saturday afternoon for the Hayti, Missouri man who drowned Tuesday while fishing on the Jerry Paul Combs Lake near Kennett.

Brian Lacey, 21, was a student at Williams Baptist College in Walnut Ridge, where he was a member of the school's baseball team.  "Brian was just a joy to be around," said WBC head coach John Katrosh.  "He was a fine, Christian young man who had a tremendous impact on our team.  He was a joy to coach."  Lacey was a physical education major at Williams, where he transferred after attending two years at Three Rivers Community College in Poplar Bluff.
