It was touching tribute for a St. Lawrence County man who died in a helicopter crash last week.

Linemen with IBEW Local 2032 in Syracuse and Local 1249 in Massena were joined by dozens of others who parked close to 60 bucket trucks along Route 37 between Louisville and Massena. 

It was their way to say goodbye and pay respects to 30 year old Jeremy Kearns. Kearns died after the helicopter he was riding in got tangled in power lines near Plattsburgh. 

He was a contractor working for the New York Power Authority. 

Kearns' funeral was Monday.
