EDINA, Minn. (AP) — Family, friends and co-workers of a Minneapolis man killed along with three of his sons in a Wyoming plane crash will gather for a memorial service to say goodbye.

The service for Luke Bucklin and his sons Nate, Noah and Nick Bucklin is at 11 a.m. Saturday at Christ Presbyterian Church in Edina.

It took searchers around Wyoming’s Gannett Peak a week to find Bucklin’s single-engine plane after it crashed on Oct. 25 in the Wind River mountains. He and his boys had flown out of Jackson after a family visit to the area and radioed ground controllers about 40 minutes later that he was encountering mild turbulence and ice was forming on the plane.
