There will also be a Celebration of Life service on Sunday, March 21 at the LHS football field from 12-2.

Listed below are the times for designated groups to visit the field. Upon arriving, it is asked to socially distance and wear masks, as large crowds are anticipated.


The walk-through service will begin at the right field entrance of the JV baseball field, toward the 50 yard line of the varsity football field, ending at the bleachers in front of the press box where a guest book and table to leave cards will be. Those who are not able to attend are welcome to watch on YouTube live by visiting the Londonderry High School website and following the YouTube link.

There will be no receiving line, but the Naar family will be present in the bleachers to be acknowledged from a distance.
