(CARMEL) - The Carmel man flying a medical helicopter when it went down outside Aurora, Illinois last week, was remembered by family and friends at the Carmel VFW post.

69-year old Dell Waugh was a regular there, so his friends and fellow veterans gathered to celebrate his life.

Waugh's best friend Al Mackinnon says Waugh loved people, loved life and especially loved to fly helicopters.

Waugh was shot down 7 times in Vietnam, but couldn't get enough and began flying for air angels.

Waugh's friend and speaker at his memorial service, Bob Frambes says his friend was a true officer and a gentleman.

Four people died in the crash, including a 1 year old girl.

Waugh will be laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery.
