Friends and family of Timothy Greenaway, who was killed in a plane crash in the Chapman Valley last week, will today farewell the 39 year old at a funeral service in Geraldton.

Mr Greenaway died last Tuesday when the crop duster plane he was flying crashed near Northern Gully Road.

A service at the Mid-West Aviation hanger will begin at 10:00am (AWST), with a private service at the Utakarra Crematorium to follow.

Friend and former colleague Ros Wikens says today is a chance to celebrate Mr Greenaway’s life.

“If there was a celebration Tim would have been there, that’s what he would have liked,” he said.

“It definitely will be a celebration of his life and there’s many … stories and there’s going to be a beer drunk for sure and I actually don’t think we’ll have enough time in the day to finish all the stories, so yes that was just the size of what type of bloke Tim was.”
