COLLBRAN, CO (KUSA/NBC) - Hundreds of people gathered in the western Colorado town of Collbran Sunday evening to remember three men killed in last week's massive mudslide.

Friends and family gathered in a school gym in Collbran to pay respect to Clarence Nichols, 51, his son Daniel, 20, and Melvin Wesley Hawkins, 46.

The three had been checking on irrigation problems caused by an initial slide when they were caught in a larger slide last week.

Their bodies have still not been recovered.
