Friends, family and colleagues gathered in north Edmonton Monday to say goodbye to one of the victims killed in the massive house explosion earlier this month.

Close to 300 people packed McClure United Church to remember Craig Huber, 29, who died in a June 20 house explosion that rocked an entire neighbourhood and damaged as many as 40 homes.

Huber and Brad Winter, 26, lived next door to the blast site and Jeanne Cathleen (Cathie) Heard, 47, and Dwayne Richard Poirier, 46, lived in the 18011 91A St house that exploded.

Three of the four deaths have been ruled homicides, while the fourth was ruled non-criminal.

Only Winter and Huber's deaths have officially been determined to be a result of the explosion.

Huber's service opened with one of his favourite songs by artist Akon.

Huber's aunt spoke at the memorial, describing her nephew as a loyal man, whose purpose in life was to care for his seven-year-old daughter Tristan.

Huber was also remembered in a video tribute before one of his cousins and Tristan read a poem commemorating him.

Heard's memorial service will be held Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. MT at Shiloh Baptist Church.

Winter's service is set for Wednesday.

Police have yet to determine the cause of the explosion.
