Friends and family of David Boyle, the Yukon man whose body was found last Friday after he had been missing for almost a month, are organizing a celebration of his life.

The service will be held Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. at the St. Elias Convention Centre in Haines Junction.

Boyle's sisters Sharon Miller and Kathy MacLeod say all friends of the family and everyone involved in the search are invited to attend.

"We had people coming in from Watson Lake, Teslin, everywhere. The Yukon population in general has been so good to us and we are so thankful. We've had people drop off food, we have had phone calls, we have had flowers, cards; it's just overwhelming how well the Yukon people have supported us."

Searchers found David Boyle's body last Friday afternoon along the Alaska Highway south of Whitehorse near Jake's Corner. His truck had gone off the road and rolled down a steep embankment.
