Bend Fire & Rescue held a joint memorial service for twin brothers Mark and Daniel Harro on Sunday, August 28, at the Hayden Homes Amphitheater in Bend.

The brothers died on August 15 after taking off from the Johnson Creek airstrip near Yellow Pine, Idaho. They were the only two occupants of the aircraft along with Daniel and Elisif’s dog, Cinder, who miraculously survived and is recovering at home in Bend.

Daniel and Mark were returning from a backcountry flying and camping trip when the crash occurred, the cause of which is still undetermined. 

Daniel Harro is survived by his wife, Elisif, and Mark Harro is survived by his wife Kelly.

The Harro brothers are also survived by their parents, John and Denise Harro, and younger sister, Laura.

At the request of both families, the memorial was a joint service for the brothers and included a full fire service active duty death ceremony arranged by Bend Fire & Rescue, the Oregon Honor Guard, and numerous other emergency service agencies.
