Funeral arangements have been set for a Tyler marine recruiter killed in a weekend car crash.

31 year old Staff Sergeant Jeffrey Pattberg of Sulphur Springs was drving between Troup and Jacksonville Friday night. He was ejected after his car ran off the road, hitting several trees.

The funeral will be Thursday morning at 10:00 a.m.  at St. James Catholic Church on Texas Street in Sulphur Springs.  Pattberg leaves behind his wife Valerie and their 1  and a half year old son Colby.
