WINNIPEG — Family and friends of Faron Hall gathered at Thunderbird House to mourn him on Tuesday.

The body of Hall, a homeless man who made headlines across the country in 2009 for rescuing two people in distress in the Red River, was pulled from the same waters on Aug. 17.

A vigil at the Alexander Docks on Aug. 19 drew more than 1,000 mourners.

A traditional wake ceremony at Thunderbird House started at 5 p.m. Tuesday and was to continue all night.

Hall’s funeral will be at Thunderbird House at 11 a.m. Wednesday.
