Funeral services have been set for two Pottawatomie County sheriff deputies killed in a crash.

Mike Roberts, 45, and Tim Lowry, 56, were serving warrants Friday when they collided with a tractor-trailer driven by William T. Musser, of Marietta, on State Highway 39, officials said. The wreck is under investigation.

Services for Lowry are set for 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Konawa. His family requests donations be made to the church's stained-glass window restoration fund.

Roberts' funeral is at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the First Baptist Church in Saint Louis.

Lowry and Roberts worked for the sheriff's department for more than 20 years, Sheriff Mike Booth said.
