Funeral Held for Mendez Brothers

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash--  Jesus and Jorge Mendez were laid to rest Saturday afternoon at Faith Assembly Christian Center in Pasco.

The two teenage boys were tragically killed last Friday in a car accident.   Over the past week, KNDU has met with friends and family of the Mendez brothers, and the one thing everyone seems to say is how much they were loved and will be missed.

It was that exact sentiment at Saturday's funeral.  Dozens showed up, some even wearing tee-shirts with the boys' picture on them.

As for the cause of the accident; it happened at Humorist Road and State Route 12 last Friday night.  State patrol troopers are still investigating and are asking for any witnesses to come forward.
