MIDDLE RIVER, MD—A candlelight will be held next month to honor a local man who was struck and killed on Pulaski Highway last weekend.

Stanley Vingsen Jr., known by many for decades as the “walking man” who could often be seen walking in and around the Nottingham area, was killed on Saturday, September 18, while crossing Route 40 near Campbell Boulevard.

Investigators determined that a driver had just made a U-turn at the intersection of Pulaski Highway and Campbell Boulevard when the 68-year-old pedestrian was struck.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The family of Stanley Vingsen is inviting the public to a candlelight vigil to be held at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 3, in the parking lot of Costco Plaza, located at 9955 Pulaski Highway (21220).

The vigil is being organized by the Vingsen family, Pastor Bob Larson, and Teresa Stepp.

A “Remembering Mr. Stanley” Facebook page has been established as well as an event page for the candlelight vigil.

A makeshift memorial has also been established at the site of the accident.
