A 36-year-old Bellmore man died after crashing an all-terrain vehicle during a family outing in upstate New York over Memorial Day weekend.

New York State police said Keith J. Stratton was riding the vehicle in the Town of Tompkins in Delaware County when the ATV overturned into a creek while he was making a right turn at 9:34 p.m. Sunday.

Stratton, who was not wearing a helmet, was killed on impact and pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Investigators believe that alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Wake services for Stratton are scheduled for 2-4 and 7-9:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday at Clair S. Bartholomew & Son Funeral Home, 302 Bedford Ave., Bellmore. A funeral mass will be held 10 a.m. Saturday next door at St. Barnabas Roman Catholic Church. He will be buried at Pinelawn National Cemetery.
