Funerals scheduled for three killed in plane crash

The Statesman Journal is reporting -

Funeral services have been set for the three East Valley men who were killed when their small plane crashed Friday in a field in Linn County.
The crash was reported about 10:20 a.m. Friday in a harvested cornfield south of Jefferson, Sheriff Tim Mueller said.

The three men were flying in a Lancair ES, which departed from Salem at 10:05 a.m. en route to Klamath Falls via Eugene when the plane lost radar contact southeast of Salem, FAA spokesman Mike Fergus said.
Officials were investigating the cause of the crash.

Pilot Louis "Jay" Lamb, 49, of Sublimity and passengers Steven Teeney, 36, of Silverton and Riley Bunn, 32, of Stayton, died upon impact, Mueller said.

Lamb was a former Stayton softball coach who led a team to the state title in 2002.

According to Teeney's obituary, Teeney partnered with Owen Von Flue at Noble Built Homes and previously owned Steven Teeney Electric.

Teeney's survivors include his wife, Jill, and four children, as well as another child due in July.

Pam Grambusch, Teeney's sister, said the men were headed to Klamath Falls to pick up a fourth man for a trip to a sportsmen's show in Salt Lake City.

"My brother was an extremist," Grambusch said. "Whatever he did, he wanted to be out of the ordinary."


Louis "Jay" Lamb: Services are set for 2 p.m. today at the gymnasium of Stayton High School, 757 W Locust St.

Steven Joseph Teeney: A memorial is set for 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Silverton High School Schlador Street gym, 800 Schlador St. in Silverton.

Riley Greg Bunn: Services are set for 11 a.m. Friday at Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Glenns Ferry, Idaho.
