PASCO, Wash. -- Family and friends are remembering a Pasco teenager who's life ended tragically this week.

18 year old Victor Aguilar just graduated from Chiawana High School this Summer. But on monday morning, he and his father, 38 year old Aguilar-Rocha were killed in a car crash near Ephrata.

Victor Aguilar was an honor student He loved art class, math, and science. His sister says he was very much into his faith.

"He was a really good guy. He was into church. He devoted his life to God, the bible. He would always tell us to go to church, to be good. He would tell us what was right and wrong," says Maggie Aguilar, Victor's sister.

His classmate at Chiawana and close friend, Angel Madrigal, describes Victor as shy. "He was just so quiet. He was a really nice guy. I always liked being in art class with him because of how he drew. He's just amazing," says Madrigal.

Victor just moved to Moses Lake to live with his father and start Big Bend Community College to become a pilot. But Monday morning, their car went off the road and landed in a canal. Victor's father died in the wreck and Victor drowned.

Funeral arrangements are still being worked out but the family needs some financial help to cover two funerals. They set up a fund for the family at US Bank.
