Vigil, funeral services scheduled for BP Agent Nicholas Ivie

A community vigil will be held Thursday for Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie at 6 p.m. at St. Michael's Catholic Church, in Naco. 

Ivie was shot and killed while on patrol early Tuesday morning.

Funeral services have also been scheduled for the slain agent. A service will be held 10 a.m. Monday at an LDS Church in Sierra Vista.

Family spokesperson Kevin Goates said that the event is intended for the family and that no cameras or recording devices will be allowed, but that "nobody will be turned away" and arrangements are being made for overflow in case attendance exceeds the building's capacity.

Goates also announced Thursday that a fund has been established to support the family. Contributions can be made through the National Bank of Arizona or through Utah's Zion National Bank by mentioning the Nicholas Ivie Memorial Fund.

Ivie,30, is survived by a wife, Christy, and two daughters, one and four years old.

In addition to Monday's services in Sierra Vista, the family is planning services in Utah later in the week.
