Services Set For Fallen Hoosier Solider

Last updated on Saturday, September 15, 2007

(ROCHESTER) - Final arrangements have been made for the funeral and burial of a Hoosier soldier.

Friends and family members of 24-year-old Nick Patterson can attend his visitation from 2 to 9 pm Tuesday at Rochester High School. The funeral will take place at 2 pm Wednesday - also at the school.

The 2001 Rochester High School graduate was killed last Monday in Baghdad when the armored truck he was riding in veered off an overpass and fell 30 feet. Five other soldiers died in that accident, with Patterson.

He leaves behind a wife and 4-year-old son.

Patterson will be buried during a private graveside service at Akron Cemetery.
