KEWASKUM -- Family, friends, teachers, and neighbors turned out today to pay their respect for two boys killed in a car accident just a few days ago. 

The death of 16 year-old friends Travis trapp and Brent Schultz devastated the close-knit community in Kewaskum.

Classmates of the boys remembered them as fun-loving and warm people. 

"Brent was crazy at school, he always had a smile on his face," said classmate Kaila Kirst, "both Travis and him lit up everyone's faces."

Friend Brad Fetcher says his loss, and the loss of three girls from Campbellsport is difficult to bear.

"It gets harder and harder each time."

The two boys crashed into a Sheriff's office patrol car on highway H Wednesday morning. Investigators believe the bad weather may have been to blame. 

The Trapp family is holding a private funeral for Travis, and Brent's funeral will be tomorrow at Trinity Lutheran Church in Dundee.
