Friends and family gathered at the Beaverton Foursquare Church Thursday to remember 17-year-old Max McGregor who was killed last week while he walked home from the bus stop.

BEAVERTON, Ore. - It was an emotional night Friday for friends and family mourning the loss of a teenager killed while walking home from the bus stop.

They gathered for a memorial at the Beaverton Foursquare Church for Max McGregor who turned 17 last month and was focusing on his engineering passion as a junior at Beaverton's Health and Science School.

Max loved to draw, he loved video games, and he loved his family and friends, who remember the tall teen as witty and compassionate.

"He always stood out obviously because of his height, but he was such a sweet, genuine, loving, caring young man," said Pastor Jeremy Stillwell. "I didn't know him well, but when I talked to him there's just something about his presence that made you want to go up to him and made you want to be his friend."

"I'm really glad I got to meet him," said Sierra who went to high school with Max. "He was really caring, and he was really funny. I loved his sense of humor, and I'm just so sad that I can't be his friend anymore."

Max's family has set up a memorial fund in his name at US Bank.

Michelle Young, 41, is the driver who hit Max. Young's mother and boyfriend think she was suffering from a seizure when she crashed into Max last week. In fact, they say young suffered a seizure that same morning and went to the hospital because of it.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office says it's still investigating and trying to determine if criminal charges should be filed.
