Trojans gathered in Bovard Auditorium Monday evening to celebrate the life of a Marshall School of Business sophomore who was found dead in his apartment Sunday, Oct. 27.

Friends remember Thu Yain "Roy" Kyaw as inspiring and generous.

His older brother, Arkar Kyaw, described Roy on Facebook saying, "He was a nerd who studied way too hard, but was also loved and respected by everyone who knew him. So driven in life while at the same time never forgetting to treasure the people he loved."

The cause of Kyaw's death is unknown as investigators wait for the results of the autopsy.
