FLORISSANT, Mo. (AP) -- A funeral was scheduled Tuesday for a 48-year-old St. Louis County man killed last week in a power plant explosion in Connecticut.

Chris Walters of Florissant was among five people killed when a powerful explosion blew apart the nearly completed Kleen Energy plant in Middletown, Conn.

Walters was the safety supervisor for an electrical contractor on the project. His job was temporary and was scheduled to end in March.

Tuesday's funeral was set for 10:30 a.m. at St. Rose Philippine Duchesne Church, followed by burial at Sacred Heart Cemetery.

Walters is survived by a wife and three children. He was an amateur ham radio operator and was involved in Boy Scouts and the Red Cross.
