Funeral held for Joe McKnight after shooting - YorkRegion.comTuesday, January 24, 2017
LenDale White, who played at the University of Southern California prior to McKnight's arrival.
As the casket and mourners headed from the church to Restlawn Cemetery in suburban Avondale, the Free Spirit Brass Band played "I'll Fly Away."
Mourners included Darryl Pierce, 58, who wore a Jets hat and shirt and green pants to honour McKnight. He said he remembered McKnight playing for John Curtis Christian High School against his own son's team, Carver High School.
"He used to put on a show against us. Against everybody," Pierce said.
"Anytime he touched the ball he could take it the distance and that was exciting about Joe," said Mark Sanchez, who played with McKnight at USC and for the Jets. "But we all remember him joking around all the time, and the warm heart he had."
Earlier classmates were there, too.
"We shared ACT math together his senior year. He had big plans. He would talk about everything he said he was going to do," Michelle Maddie, a high-school classmate, told WWL-TV (http://bit.ly/2gEYnaG). "He said, 'Before I leave this Earth, the world will know who I am.' And I think everybody does."
This story has been corrected to reflect that White played at USC prior to McKnight, not with the Jets.

Deer Lake town council approves crematorium for Main Street funeral home - The Western StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Ball.The mayor said the town researched the issue and the particular unit Parsons Funeral Home is proposing to use.Newfoundland and Labrador does not have emission standards that are specific to crematoriums, but Ball said every indication was that the emissions from the crematorium unit would easily meet all the existing standards in the province.The funeral home is already in a zone designated as commercial, so no rezoning was required to permit the crematorium.Ball said council understands the sensitive nature of the topic, but believes they made the right decision.“Today’s technology has all the checks and balances needed and we don’t think there is any reason for anyone to be alarmed,” he said.Let's block ads!
