Friends and relatives say a 30-year-old man killed in a speedboat crash on the Hudson River will be remembered for his bright-smile and love of small adventures.
Mark Lennon was supposed to be the best man at Brian Bond's wedding next week.
Instead, Bond attended Lennon's funeral Friday at a Roman Catholic church in Piermont, N.Y.
Lennon and Bond's fiancee, Lindsey Stewart, were killed July 26 when a speedboat slammed into a barge beneath the Tappan Zee Bridge. Four others, including Bond, were injured.
The boat's operator faces a charge of vehicular manslaughter.
Lennon's brother told mourners at the funeral that his "smile is shining down on us."
Ray Lennon said his brother enjoyed every moment and found a way to add adventure to every day.
