ASPEN, Colo., July 9 (UPI) -- Friends and family of the late Ken Lay gathered at tiny Aspen Chapel in Colorado Sunday, to remember the former Enron chairman and celebrate his life.

Lay died at 64 of a heart attack Wednesday with his wife, Linda, by his side. The Enron founder -- convicted this spring of scheming to prop up the company's share price in one of the nation's most notorious corporate crime cases -- was at his home in nearby Snowmass when he suffered the attack, said the Houston Chronicle.

Services in Houston are planned for Wednesday at First United Methodist Church.
