LACROSSE (WAOW)-- Family and friends gathered in Decorah, Iowa Friday to say good bye to La Crosse native Ben Larson.

Larson was in Haiti doing training and research with his wife and cousin when the January 12th earthquake hit, flattening the building where he was living.

His wife and cousin were able to escape and returned to the US shortly after.

Friday afternoon, Wartburg Seminary held a memorial service where Larson would have graduated with his Master's Degree in Divinity in May.
