David Matthew Sloan, 29, of Wilmington, a UNCA alumnus, collapsed and died of heat-related illness at the Bonnaroo festival on Sunday.
Sloan attended UNCA from the Fall of 1999 to Spring 2005, according to university officials, though, contrary to initial reports, he did not graduate.
According to an announcement on Sloan’s Facebook page, there will be a memorial service on Saturday, June 19:
“Matt will be cremated in Nashville and his family plans to return home on Wed. A memorial service will be held on Sat., June 19th at 10 a.m. at Saint Andrews on the Sound in Wilmington, NC. His ashes will be scattered at 4 p.m. on Sat. June 19th at Sander’s Point at Trinity Center in Salter Path, NC. Please consider coming to celebrate Matt—a beautiful spirit that touched so many of us, albeit for too short of a time.”
