Strickland’s widow, Helen Strickland, made the announcement through an Instagram post on Jan. 7. The service is scheduled for Jan. 12 at the Cross Church Pinnacle Hills Campus in Rogers, AK. Beginning at 6 p.m. CST, fans will be able to stream the service through Cross Church’s website.
“To all reading this message, you are invited to join our family at Craig’s memorial service either at CrossChurch or via webcast,” Helen Strickland wrote. “I love you all, thank you for loving my husband.”
Earlier in the day, Backroad Anthem announced they would continue to play music together following Strickland’s tragic death. In addition to a sold-out show at George’s Majestic Lounge in their hometown of Fayetteville, Ark. on on Jan. 16, the group will perform a second concert at the same venue the following day.
“We could never replace Craig, but we know he would want us to continue,” the band posted on their Facebook page. “Thank you for all your support and prayers.”
Strickland was found dead from hypothermia on Jan. 16, a week after he was reported missing. He, along with his friend Chase Morland, died after their boat capsized during severe weather while on a duck hunting trip on Oklahoma’s Kaw Lake.
