Members of the Victoria street community are hosting a celebration of life today for Lloyd “Jo” Soluk, who was killed in a garbage truck accident last week.

Soluk was killed after a dumpster in which he was sleeping was emptied into a garbage truck.

A well-known member of the community, Soluk often accessed services at Our Place Society.

“From what I understand, he was a really nice guy,” says Grant McKenzie, Our Place director of communications.

Festivities will begin at 1 p.m. outside the Seventh Day Adventist Church at Pandora Avenue and Vancouver Street.

The incident remains under investigation.
