Comedian James McNair was remebered during a funeral in Peekskill, several days after he was killed in an accident that also injured Tracy Morgan.
Family and friends gathered at the Paramount Theater yesterday. He was a mentor to Morgan.
McNair was killed last Saturday morning in an accident on the New Jersey Turnpike. Authorities said the limo he was riding in was struck by a Wal-Mart truck driven by Kevin Roper.
Roper is accused of being awake for more than 24 hours straight before the crash. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of death by auto and assault by auto.
Morgan remains hospitalized.
"His medical team remains optimistic that his recovery is progressing," Morgan's publicist Lewis Kay said.
