Funeral held for second teen killed in Falmouth crash

FALMOUTH, MASS. (WHDH) - The second of two Falmouth teens killed in a car crash last week was remembered at a funeral mass Friday.

Funeral services were held Friday for one of the victims, Owen Higgins, one week after he and James Lavin were killed while driving home from hockey practice.

Several of Higgins’ friends and teammates carried his casket into the service. The church swelled with more classmates, teammates and friends.

Higgins’ grandfather, George Berube, fought through tears as he spoke of his grandson and how his brothers helped mold him. Berube also talked about the special relationship Higgins had with Lavin, his best friend.

The community has spent the week mourning the devastating loss, with Lavin laid to rest earlier this week.

Family members said the best friends will be buried next to each other.
