Family and friends gathered to remember a husband and father of three who tragically lost his life in a drowning accident earlier this week.

A memorial service was held for Jacob Baxter, 28, on Saturday at the Pearce Memorial Church in North Chili.

Police say Baxter was hiking with friends when he slipped and fell into the Genesee River on Monday. They say fishermen discovered his body on Wednesday.

Loved ones say Baxter was a kind and loving person who will be greatly missed.
