Services for Keith Fullenkamp, the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources sergeant who died earlier this week in a Wyoming crash, will be Monday in Ogden.

Fullenkamp, 37, will be eulogized at 11 a.m. in the Weber State University Dee Events Center, 4400 Harrison Blvd. He will be cremated, and there will be no graveside service, said Mike Fowlks, deputy DWR director.

Family and friends are invited to a private 6-8 p.m. viewing on Sunday at the Leavitt Mortuary, 836 36th St. in Ogden.

The Sergeant Keith Fullenkamp Memorial Fund has been established at US Bank to help with funeral and other family expenses.

Fullenkamp, of South Weber, was driving home from a hunting trip in Colorado about 1 p.m. Tuesday when he collided head-on with a semitrailer rig on Wyoming Highway 789, about 15 miles north of Baggs.

Fullenkamp was driving north in his 2003 Chevy pickup truck when the southbound semi crossed the center line. He attempted to avoid the big rig by driving onto the northbound shoulder, but the two vehicles collided.

The semi caught fire and became fully involved in flames, but the semi's driver escaped with non-life threatening injuries.

Fullenkamp died at the scene.

Why the semi driver drifted into the oncoming lane remained under investigation by the Wyoming Highway Patrol.
