54 year old John Hartford was killed Friday evening in a motorcycle accident on Highway 26 just outside of Mitchell. He was the principal at Elton Gregory Middle School.
His pastor, Chris Blair of "Powell Butte Chrisitian Church" says Hartford was the kind of guy who was always looking out for other people.
A candlelight vigil for Hartford was held at Powell Butte Christian Church Monday night. A memorial service will be held at Ridgeview High School Wednesday night at 6 p.m.
