Saturday funeral for 2 killed in plane collision

A funeral service is planned Saturday for the two brothers who were killed when two planes collided midair near Boulder Municipal Airport last Saturday.

Fifty-eight-year-old Bob Matthews and his 56-year-old brother Mark Matthews were in a Cirrus SR-20 that crashed with a Piper Pawnee being flown by 25-year-old Alexander Howard Gilmer. Gilmer also died in the crash. A glider being towed by the Piper Pawnee
disconnected just before impact and the three people in it survived.

The Matthews brothers, both from Boulder, will have a combined funeral service at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Lafayette.
