A funeral service for Daniel Shoemake, 21, will be held in Pleasanton's St. Augustine Catholic Church in Pleasanton at 10 a.m. tomorrow.
Mr. Shoemake was found dead last Friday in the driver's seat of his truck parked near where Michel David, 22, his former girlfriend, was found dead from gunshot wounds near the San Diego State University campus. A handgun was found on the floorboard of the truck, police said, and a rifle was recovered near Miss David's body.
Mr. Shoemake had attended San Diego State and was at the top of his class in the school's ROTC program. He was anticipating a commission as an army officer in 2011.
On Thanksgiving Day, when Mr. Shoemake was back in Pleasanton visiting his family, they hiked to the top of Del Valle Ridge on the last holiday weekend they were all together.
Mr. Shoemake is survived by his parents Jean and Rex Shoemake, his brother Brett, and his sister Annie. He also leaves his grandparents JoAnne and James Shoemake and uncles, aunts and cousins.
A vigil for Mr. Shoemake will be held at the Graham-Hitch Mortuary at 4167 First St. in Pleasanton at 7 p.m. tonight.
