The procession is expected to leave the funeral home at about 11:45 a.m., driving south down N. Monroe to E. Division before heading west on 10 Mile to City Church.

No procession will be held after the funeral ceremony.

Kent County Sheriff’s Office’s Records Division will be closed all day Friday to allow staff to attend the funeral.
