Hundreds of people have gathered to mourn three young brothers who died after their car plunged into a canal in Delaware.

The News Journal reports a funeral was held Friday in Wilmington for 18-year-old Willis Lindsey Jr., 16-year-old Kyree Lindsey and 6-year-old Ethan Lindsey. The boys were remembered as lovers of all things outdoors who enjoyed spending time with family.

The three died along with a cousin nearly two weeks ago. They were traveling to a football game when they took a wrong turn and wound up on a gravel road along the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. Willis Lindsey Sr. has said the vehicle driven by his eldest son plunged into the canal as they were trying to make their way back to the main road.

The newspaper reports a funeral for the fourth victim, 12-year-old Eric Lindsey, is set for Saturday.
