The funeral service will be held at 11 this morning at the First Baptist Church on Reynolds Road in Johnson City.

The funeral procession is expected to start moving from Port Dickinson at around 10, proceed on Chenango Street to Bevier Street, to Front Street, Prospect Street, onto Airport Road, then East Maine Road it will meet Reynolds Road near the church.

Dozens of law enforcement vehicles are expected to accompany the procession and hundreds of residents are expected to line the streets to honor the 13 year veteran of the State Police force.
