The funeral has been set for a Baldwinsville man who was hit and killed while walking along Route 31 by the Country Max store earlier this month.

Deputies say 27-year-old Donald Milazzo III died several days after being hit by a pickup truck.

No tickets have been issued for the crash; deputies have said the driver of the pickup cooperated with their investigation.

His obituary says he will be laid to rest with full military honors on July 23. He was a U.S. Navy veteran and a pit bull breeder.

A GoFundMe page has also been setup by a family friend to help with funeral costs. As of this writing $2,500 has been raised; the GoFundMe has a goal of $10,000.
