FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - About 200 family, friends and fellow service members gathered Tuesday to remember the Colorado Marine killed in a crash on his way home to surprise his little brother.

The Coloradoan (https://noconow.co/1tGHx9L ) reports that they attended the funeral for Lance Cpl. Brennan Ching at Faith Evangelical Church in Fort Collins. Two fire ladder trucks displayed a large American flag outside.

Ching died in a rollover crash in central Utah on Aug. 15 while traveling from California to Fort Collins.

He told his sister he was planning to take his brother, 8-year-old Alex Vicary, to his first day of second grade.

The newspaper published a story about Ching coming home to surprise Alex last March after the little boy sent a letter to the Easter bunny asking that his brother be brought home.
