St. Matthew the Apostle Church of Randolph, citing a “tragic loss for our community,” hosts a memorial service on Monday night at 7 p.m. for the close friends and RHS football teammates according to its Facebook page. Although neither family attends the church, parish secretary Terry Shaw tells “we’ve just been getting a lot of phone calls from people who wanted somewhere they could turn.”

Citing safety concerns, Randolph High School will also be open on Tuesday from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. for students to “talk or simply visit with friends” instead of gathering at the crash scene on Ironia Road. Counselors from CONCERN, the District’s Personnel Service Agency will also be on hand.

According to a report on, Timmerman and Verduga were passengers in a car traveling on Ironia Road, when the driver lost control around 1:35 p.m. and went off the road, hitting a street sign and a tree.

A joint wake will be held at Resurrection Catholic Church, at 651 Millbrook Avenue. in Randolph from 3 to 8 p.m on Wednesday, according to Jack Timmerman’s funeral will take place on Thursday at Mendham Hills Community Church in Chester Township at 10 a.m. while a Mass for Calvin Verduga will be held at Sacred Heart Church, at 4 Richards Ave. in Dover.
