Funeral for plane crash victims will be in Ohio

The family of an Ohio couple who died Sunday in a small-plane crash at Wheeler Downtown Airport announced funeral plans Wednesday.

John Kenneth Lallo Sr., 52, and Diana Christine Ceo Lallo, 53, died when their single-engine plane crashed into a field just south of the runway not long after taking off.

They were in Kansas City visiting family.

The couple married after graduating from high school in the late 1970s. John Lallo worked for the family business, McRoyal Industries Inc., in Youngstown, Ohio, while Diana Lallo worked as a science teacher.

Visitation will take place Saturday at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, 1125 Turin St., Youngstown, Ohio, from 8 to 11 a.m., followed by a funeral Mass.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the church.
