Organizer Ashlee Kelly tells the station that Bennington "touched so many lives" with his words.

The public memorial came a week after a private service was held for Bennington.

The 41-year-old Bennington hanged himself from a bedroom door in his home near Los Angeles last month. His death was ruled a suicide.
