Grooveshark Co-Founder Josh Greenberg’s Memorial Service Set for Friday

Entrepreneur was found dead on Sunday at age 28, just months after his streaming service shut down amid copyright infringement lawsuits

Josh Greenberg, the co-founder of streaming service Grooveshark who was found dead over the weekend at age 28, will be remembered at a memorial service in Gainesville, Florida, on Friday, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The service will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. at the University of Florida’s Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, with doors opening at 3:30.

In lieu of flowers, Greenberg’s family ask that donations be made to the United Way of North Central Florida and the Alachua County Humane Society.

Greenberg was discovered dead in bed at his Florida home on Sunday by his girlfriend. The Gainesville Police Department noted that there was “no evidence of foul play or suicide,” while Greenberg’s mother said that there was no evidence of injuries or drugs, citing police.

“They are as baffled as I am,” Greenberg’s mother Lori said.

Greenberg founded Grooveshark with Sam Tarantino at age 19. After gaining success, the site closed up shop in April, after being hammered with copyright infringement lawsuits filed by record labels.
