Bantwal: Noel Fred Crasta (26), son of Francis and Theresa Crasta of Veeraje Pachinadka of Kallige village, had died in an elevator mishap in Jordan on Aug 5.
He had earlier worked in Dubai for the same employer and was on deputation for the last two years. He and another man, a Jordanian, died of a fall from a height of 25 floors.
Noel’s mortal remains were brought to his residence on Saturday, Aug 15. The delay of 10 days was caused by technical and legal snags.
The final rites were held in Modankap church the same day, said family sources. The family members are grief-stricken because he was the sole support to them.
The day he died, they said, he had called his mother and informed of his plans to get married during coming December.
He is survived by parents and a married sister.
