CRANSTON, R.I. – The body of a former Rhode Island man has been returned to Cranston from Colorado, where he died when he accidentally fell between two bridges in Aspen.

Twenty-eight-year-old George Aldrich Jr.’s body was discovered last week in Aspen, where he had been reported missing about two weeks earlier. Authorities concluded he had fallen about 100 feet through a gap between the bridges.

His wake is set for Sunday in Cranston, followed by a funeral Mass on Monday.

Aldrich was originally from Cranston and was working as a ski lift operator. Family members had traveled from Rhode Island to Colorado to help in the search.

His death has been ruled accidental.
