A South Bend family is mourning the loss of a loved one who died in a weekend plane crash.
26-year old David Kubsch was killed when his plane went down in Munster, Indiana Friday.
Family members say 26 year old David Kubsch always wanted to fly for a living.
He worked for Chicago Business Air in Lansing, Illinois.
He graduated from Adams High School in South Bend and earned a degree in aviation from Indiana State University.
Family members say he was training with a co-worker when the accident happened.
They say he died doing what he loved to do.
“The story of David becoming an aviator is that at 6 years old he took a ride in a state police helicopter and from that point on that was his passion. He wanted to be a pilot,” says his father, Kevin Kubsch.
David's family now shares all of their good memories of him like his good sense of humor, love of sports, and passion for flying.
“I mean there are the sad moments. We'll never see him married. We'll never have grandkids, never grow old with him, but he is special boy to us and we loved him.. terribly loved him,” says his mother, Holly Kubsch.
The visitation is on Tuesday from two to eight at McGann Hay Funeral Home in Granger.
David's funeral service is on Wednesday at eleven.
Memorial contributions may be given to Little Flower Catholic Church in South Bend.
