HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - Visitation for Lofton Hazelwood is underway.

There’s a long line of friends and family members stretched around the church waiting to pay their respects.

Hazelwood was found unresponsive at the Farmhouse Fraternity at the University of Kentucky and died at the hospital.

The coroner says the cause of death is presumed to be “alcohol toxicity”, but they are still investigating.

Hazelwood is a Henderson native and a 2021 graduate of Henderson County High School.

Visitation lasts until 8 p.m. at Holy Name Church in Henderson.

The funeral will be Saturday at noon.

Family members say they’ve created a Lofton Hazelwood Memorial Fund with an account at Field and Main Bank.

The fund will be used to create a scholarship for local area students in Lofton’s name.
