UPDATE: LEWISTON, Idaho - A husband and father of four, Bryce Winterbottom, was killed on Saturday, June 28th when the aircraft he was piloting, crashed near a private landing strip south of Lewiston. He was just 29-years-old and leaves behind his wife and four young children.

Bryce's funeral service will be conducted on Saturday, July 5th 10:00am at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints located at the intersection of 9th Street and Preston Avenue in Lewiston, Idaho. All are welcome.

The following was taken from the Winterbottom's GoFundMe page to raise money for his funeral costs:

"The impression Bryce made on people was immediate and eternal. In his quiet way, he befriended everyone he met. He had a disarming grin and such subtle mannerisms. It was impossible not like him or instantly feel included by him.

We can never replace the father and husband that Bryce was to his family. What we can do is share in their grief and reach out with tokens of our sorrow."
