Double funeral services will be held at the York Center Methodist Church at 2 p.m. Saturday for two brothers who died as the result of an auto accident near Alberton, Montana, on Labor Day.

Horace of 1103 East Blodgett Street, Marshfield, died instantly about midnight Monday when the car being driven by his brother Roy, Route 1, Neillsville, hit loose gravel on a road construction project on Highway 10, near Alberton. Roy was hospitalized at Missoula, Montana, where he died Tuesday night of a concussion. The brothers had been visiting on the West Coast and were eastbound en route to Missoula, Montana to visit another brother, Earl, who is seriously ill, and were only 40 miles from Missoula when the accident occurred.
