Funeral services held for Westport boy killed in crash

Posted: Updated:
WESTPORT -

Family and friends said their final goodbyes to a Westport fourth-grader killed in a car accident.

Trustworthy, loyal and kind are just a few words loved ones used to describe 10-year-old Perrin Delorey.

He and his parents had just visited the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, before the accident.

Police say their car drifted over the center line and hit another car head on. 

Perrin died in the hospital with his baseball glove beside him.

Perrin attended Greens Farms Elementary, was a Cub Scout and a Westport Little League player.  

His fellow Little Leaguers gathered outside of Saint Luke Church today for the services.  They also played a special game in his honor over the weekend.

Instead of flowers, family members are asking donations be made to the Boy Scouts of America-Greater New York chapter or the National Down Syndrome Society in Perrin's honor.
