We now know when the Michiana community will get to pay their respects to a Rolling Prairie native who died in a military crash.

Tech Sergeant Dale Mathews was one of four men who died during an Air Force training mission, off the coast of England.

An investigation is still underway.

Matthews was a 1994 graduate of New Prairie High School, and still has family in Michiana.

He was just months away from ending his military tour and coming home.

Funeral home directors tell NewsCenter 16 services for Mathews will be held Saturday, January 25 at New Prairie High School.

The family will receive visitors from 9 a.m., with the service starting at 11 a.m.

Mathews will be laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery on February 5.

Memorial contributions can be made at any 1st source bank.
