Visitation, Funeral this Week for UPS Employee Killed at Accent Signage
A visitation will be held tonight for a Spring Lake Park man killed in a shooting rampage at Accent Signage Systems last week.
Fifty-year-old Keith Basinski, a UPS deliveryman, was a familiar face on the route that took him to the sign company in a northern Minneapolis neighborhood. Police say he was loading his truck when he was shot by Andrew Engeldinger.
Basinski was a father of two sons and a daughter. Jill Schubert, president of the UPS Northern Plains District, said Basinski had been with the company 29 years, adding: "We are going to miss him very much."
The visitation is from 6-9 p.m. Wednesday in the Miller Funeral Home in Fridley. The funeral will be at 1 p.m. Thursday at Emmanuel Christian Center in Spring Lake Park.
A memorial fund has been established for Basinski. Donations can be mailed or dropped off at First Advantage Bank, 9950 Foley Blvd NE, Coon Rapids, MN 55433. Donations will be accepted through Oct. 31.
