A memorial service for a popular Metro hawker who died suddenly about two weeks ago will be held next week.

The service for David Tagliaferro will be held Monday at 10 a.m. at St. Anthony's Church in Somerville.

Tagliaferro who worked as a Metro hawker at the Davis Square MBTA station for six years handing out the newspaper to countless Red Line commuters, died suddenly at his Somerville home Sept. 29. He was 66.

Scores of T riders left sympathy messages on a message board at the T station announcing his death earlier this month.
