STILLWATER, Minn. -- Loved ones laid a 17-year-old boy to rest Tuesday after he lost his life in a stabbing on the Apple River.

Isaac Schuman was tubing on the river last month in Somerset, Wisconsin, when it happened. The high school student lived in Stillwater.

Family and friends gathered there Tuesday for a funeral service followed by a celebration of life.

"Everybody says the same thing: He was the brightest star, he lifted everyone up, great personality, always smiling," said family friend Tim Howard.

Family friends say Schuman owned his own business and had big plans for his future, including attending college to become an electrical engineer.

Nicolae Miu, 52, is charged with stabbing Schuman and four others late last month. Those other victims survived.
