The Oshawa Funeral Home says on its website that a drive past visitation for Chris Traynor, his sons Bradley and Joey and his daughter Adelaide, will held on Sept. 16 at 10 a.m. A private funeral and interment will be held the following day.

Loretta Traynor, the children’s mother and Chris’s wife, was seriously injured in the Sept. 4 mass shooting.

A fourth child, Sam, wasn’t home at the time of the incident but is now by his mother’s side.

He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
