Memorial planned for grandson of former Michigan coach

SALINE, MI (AP) -

A public memorial is planned for the 5-year-old grandson of former Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr.

A statement released on behalf of Chad Carr's family says a visitation and celebration are scheduled for Sunday at the Saline High School Performing Arts Center south of Ann Arbor. He died Monday in the family's Pittsfield Township home, about a year after being diagnosed with brain cancer.

The family asks no cameras be present during the visitation and encourages attendees to wear orange, Chad's favorite color.

Chad's story brought together the Wolverines' biggest rivals as he entered hospice: Michigan State and Ohio State players wore helmet decals honoring him when they played Saturday. It featured the image of a boy flexing his muscles and "ChadToughFDN" after the foundation created by his parents.

His father, Jason Carr, is a former Michigan quarterback.
