A Chippewa Falls businessman who died in a motorcycle accident last week was laid to rest Tuesday.

The memorial service was standing room only at First Congregational Church in Eau Claire Tuesday morning for John Kell.

The 54-year-old was well known throughout the Chippewa Valley as a philanthropist and a board member for the UW-Eau Claire Foundation.

The CEO of Kell Container died in a crash on Highway 53 near Haugen last Friday evening.

Kell was buried in a private ceremony earlier in Chippewa Falls at Forest Hills Cemetery.
