Vigil to honor memory of Charlie Howard on anniversary of his death
In 1984, a Bangor man was killed because he was gay.
Tuesday evening, on the anniversary of his death, a vigil will be held to honor the memory of Charlie Howard.
It will take place outside the Brick Church on Union Street in Bangor at 7 p.m.
Those taking part will then walk in silence to the State Street bridge where the 23-year-old Howard was attacked.
Howard drowned after a group of teens threw him into the Kenduskeag Stream.
