Former Miami University student Aaron Lakes, 24, died unexpectedly Monday, Sept. 15. Miami officials have no information on the cause of death.

Lakes, from Germantown, Ohio, was a junior kinesiology major studying at Miami's regional campuses; however, he was not enrolled at the time of his death. He lived in Oxford where he worked as a bartender at O'Pub.

Director of University News and Communications Claire Wagner expressed theUniversity's condolences.

"Anytime a young person is lost, we as the campus feel it because you never know the potential that he or she had and what they might have done," Wagner said.

Funeral services for Lakes will be held at Arpp and Root Funeral Home today at 10 a.m., and burial services will follow at Germantown Cemetery.
