The 15-year-old Brooklyn high school student who died during class last week is remembered.

A memorial service for Cardell Lee was held Monday night, giving friends and family one last chance to celebrate his life and say their goodbyes.

"He was a loving and caring brother and a great uncle," said Shaquan Nelson, Lee's brother. "Anything you ask him, he'd do. He could play video games. He wanted to be a video game designer. He wanted to play football. He was just joyful. He put a smile on anybody's face he'd come across."

The High School for Civil Rights student was found dead after a teacher saw him slumped over in his chair during class.

The medical examiner has yet to declare a cause of death, although family has said Lee suffered from asthma.
