A trust fund has been set up for the family of a Sylvan Lake area father of four who died in an avalanche on Friday.

Steven Burke Hall, 33, of Birchcliff, on the eastern shore of Sylvan Lake, died on a mountain about 30 km southeast of Sparwood early Friday afternoon.

A 30-day trust fund has been set up in the name of Lara Hall at the Royal Bank of Canada.

A group of six snowmobilers stopped for lunch while Hall and two other individuals continued to ride up the mountain before the avalanche struck.

Hall was the owner of Havan Built Homes and Precision Placement Sand and Gravel. He was married and had three young daughters and one son.

Funeral arrangements will take place in Cardston at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the Cardston Alberta Stake Centre at 2 p.m. this Friday.
