TUCSON, Ariz. — A Celebration of Life is planned for the 47-year-old man, whose family says was killed in a terror attack in Kenya.

The attack reportedly happened the weekend of January 3rd.

Dustin Harrison was a pilot in Gilbert and had been in Kenya for two months. He was expected to return home the week of January 13, according to his family.

His wife, Hope, posted online, in part, saying: "Received the heart wrenching call this evening that my beautiful husband was one of the casualties from the terrorist that took place early this morning. My world is completely a nightmare at the moment. My worst fear is now my reality. The pain is unbearable. Please keep myself and our family in your prayers."

Harrison is survived by his wife and 2-year-old daughter, Heaven.

A public Facebook event says the Celebration of Life will be held at St. Augustine Cathedral Church, 192 South Stone Avenue.

The service will be from 2 until 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 18.
