The body of the U.S. Army medic who died in Afghanistan during a Skype video chat with his wife is scheduled to arrive this weekend in western New York.

The family of 43-year-old Capt. Bruce Kevin Clark tells Rochester media outlets that his body will arrive Saturday morning at Rochester International Airport.

Clark's wife is from nearby Spencerport. He and his family lived there for six years before he joined the Army in 2006.

Military officials say Clark's wife, Susan Orellana-Clark, was in Texas communicating with him via Skype on April 30 when he suddenly collapsed. Army officials say the investigation into the cause of death is continuing.

Funeral arrangements haven't been released yet.

Clark grew up in Michigan. He was assigned to the medical center in El Paso and was deployed in March.
