A Tragedy

A 15 year old boy was killed on Saturday night in a snow machine/car accident on the Parks Hwy.  He is a local boy, very well known and loved.  He attended our youth group.

Our town is devastated and the teenagers are walking wells of tears.  

The funeral will be on Friday evening.  The family is choosing to be alone during this time of grief.

Please pray for Pastor Bill as he will be taking part in the service, and for the boy’s family.

    Nenana mayor’s son killed in snowmachine crash on Parks

    FAIRBANKS — The son of Nenana’s mayor was killed in a snowmachine accident Saturday on the Parks Highway.

    Josh Mayrand, 15, the son of mayor Jason Mayrand, was killed after the snowmachine he was riding was struck by a vehicle as he crossed the highway.

    Troopers have not released any other details of the crash, including the identity of the driver, but spokeswoman Megan Peters said no charges have been filed.

    Toxicology tests for both drivers are pending, though Peters said such tests are routine after fatal accidents and not an indication that drugs or alcohol were a factor.
