MOUNT WOLF, Pa. (AP) -- A Pennsylvania man who loved the outdoors has been carried to his grave in a boat pulled by a truck.

Diehl Funeral Home spokesman Michael Gladfelter says a casket containing 78-year-old Mount Wolf resident Ronald Bloss Sr. was loaded onto a small boat and trailer on Wednesday and was pulled to a cemetery by a pickup truck driven by one of his five sons. Mount Wolf is about 30 miles south of Harrisburg, the state capital.

The York Daily Record (http://bit.ly/1hs2H5C) reports Bloss loved hunting, fishing and spending time on rivers.

An obituary says Bloss died Jan. 11 at his home.

Bloss was a U.S. Navy veteran. He also enjoyed coaching and umpiring.
