More than 400 people filled the Center for the Arts in Jackson on Tuesday to remember Teton County Search and Rescue volunteer Ray Shriver. The 63-year-old died after the helicopter he was riding in crashed on a rescue mission last week.
Search and Rescue Director Tim Ciocarlan described Shriver as a quiet hero, who was instrumental in organizing and training the county's volunteer rescue team.
