TUCSON -- Friends and family of a University of Arizona student found dead in his fraternity house packed a church for the teen's memorial service in Tucson.

Andrew Segal, 19, was found dead in the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house at about 2 p.m. Friday; the cause is under investigation.

More than 150 people attended a memorial service for Segal on Sunday, remembering him as never failing to make people laugh, always belting out show tunes and donning his trademark spiky hair.

His friends laughed at a description of Segal as a human version of Tigger -- the bouncy tiger from Winnie the Pooh -- even as they choked back tears.

Segal's family also attended the service after traveling from their home in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Segal's funeral will be held Friday in Los Altos Hills, Calif.
