Memorial services were held Friday for a couple originally from Barry County who were killed in a hit-and-run crash in Grand Rapids Oct. 19.

Todd Fuhr and his wife, Tracy Fuhr, both 56, died last Saturday night when they were struck by a car at the intersection of Oakes Street SW and Grandville Avenue, in Grand Rapids' downtown area. A 44-year-old man believed to be the driver is being held in the Kent County Jail on multiple felony charges.

Todd Fuhr graduated from Hastings High School in 1982 and later earned a bachelor's degree from Davenport University.

Tracy (Curtiss) Fuhr was a 1981 Thornapple Kellogg High School graduate who later attended Grand Rapids Community College. The couple had married in 2005.

The couple are survived by four sons – Josh, Jeremy, Jordan and Tyler.

Todd Fuhr, who was adopted, is also survived by his biological mother and biological brother, while Tracy Fuhr is survived by two sisters.

The suspect, Jason Steven McCann, has been charged with two counts of reckless driving causing death and two counts of failure to stop at the scene of an accident. He is being held on a $100,000 bond pending further court hearings.
