Local clergy and others will gather Friday for a brief, spiritual ceremony in honor of a man killed in a hit-and-run crash last week in Puyallup.

The Moment of Blessing ceremony for Ryan Seward, 46, begins at 11 a.m. in the 2800 block of Ninth Street Southwest in Puyallup.

Seward, a career Coast Guard officer, was killed the evening of Aug. 4 when an SUV struck his motor scooter. Prosecutors have charged a 56-year-old Puyallup man with vehicular homicide. Puyallup police have said alcohol appeared to be a factor in the wreck.

Associated Ministries host Moments of Blessing to cleanse the scenes where people are killed in Pierce County. The sites are marked with bamboo poles laced with the names of homicide victims and the dates of their deaths.
