NORWALK, Calif. (KABC) -- Family and friends said goodbye on Saturday to the 19-year-old Whittier man with autism found dead on a school bus.

The funeral for Hun Joon "Paul" Lee was held at St. Raphael Korean Catholic Center in Norwalk.

His body was found on the bus in a Whittier School District parking lot on Sept. 11 after the driver, apparently a substitute, forgot about him all day.

The company that operates the school bus said it is implementing several changes to make sure an incident like this one does not happen again.
