— A Kansas family of six who died in a Florida plane crash are remembered for their kindness and generous contributions to their community and Kansas State University.

More than 2,000 people filled a Junction City school auditorium on Monday for the funeral Mass for 45-year-old Ron Bramlage; his 43-year-old wife, Rebecca; and their children, 15-year-old Brandon, 13-year-old Boston, 11-year-old Beau and 8-year-old Roxanne.

WIBW-TV reports the mourners included Kansas State football coach Bill Snyder. Ron and Rebecca were active in the university's Alumni Association, President's Club and other groups. Kansas State's multi-purpose arena, Bramlage Coliseum, is named for Ron's grandfather, Fred Bramlage.

The family died June 7 when their private plane crashed in Florida as they were returning home from the Bahamas. The cause remains under investigation.

Such a sad loss. I hope they didn't have to deal with the idiots from WBC showing up to picket the funeral.I read somewhere that it was their plan.
