A U.S. Marine who died in a helicopter crash in Nepal will be buried Friday in his native Wichita.
The body of 31-year-old Capt. Chris Norgren was returned to Wichita Tuesday. He was one of six Marines and two Nepali service members who died May 12 when the U.S. Marine helicopter they were in crashed while delivering disaster aid to earthquake victims in Nepal.
After his body arrived at McConnell Air Force Base, it was escorted to the funeral home by more than 50 motorcycle riders as hundreds of people lined the route to honor Norgren.
Norgren’s funeral is scheduled for Friday at 10:30 a.m. at St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church in Wichita.
