Funeral services for Sgt Korby Kennedy will be held at the Foster CommunicationColiseum, 50 E 43rd Street, at 2:00 pm on Monday June29, 2015.


A procession will begin at 12:00 pm from Johonson's Funeral Home to the Coliseum. For citizens who would like to line up along the street, the procession will leave Johnson's Funeral home east on Beauregard.  The procession will then proceed north on Bryant Blvd, east on 29th Street, north on Chadbourne Street to Coliseum Drive, and into the Coliseum parking lot.


As members of the community arrive to the Coliseum, please begin parking in the west side parking lot first.  Once this lot is full, parking will begin at the rear of the east side parking lot.  There will be traffic control assisting with this process.


The doors to the Coliseum will open to the public at 1:00 pm.  The San Angelo Police Department and the Kennedy family ask that the members of the community attending the services begin filling the blue seats inside the Coliseum first.  The red box seats will be reserved for San Angelo Police Department employees and family, city employees, and council members.


At the conclusion of the inside service, a committal service will be held directly outside the Coliseum for Law Enforcement Officers and family only.  The committal service will be broadcast on the big screens inside the Coliseum in order for those who remain inside to be able to view that portion of the service.  The SAPD and Kennedy family ask that all citizens in attendance remain inside during this portion of the service.


At the conclusion of the committal service, there will be a second procession back to Johnson's Funeral Home.  The route will be the direct opposite of the route taken to get to the Coliseum.  It is anticipated this procession will begin around 3:30 pm.  Citizens may start to exit the Coliseum upon conclusion of the committal to see the procession leave. We ask that no one attempt to leave until after the procession has left the parking lot.


The SAPD and the Kennedy family ask all of the members of the community in attendance to please honor all of these requests.  The SAPD and the Kennedy family would like to be able to fill the Coliseum with those who wish to honor the memory of Sgt Korby Kennedy and therefore encourage anyone who is able to attend the services to do so.  


For those unable to attend the services, KIDY Fox will be broadcasting the service live on their station beginning at 2:00 pm.


Due to the services for Sgt Kennedy, the San Angelo Police Department offices will beclosed on Monday June 29, 2015.  Essential personnel on patrol will still be answering calls for service.


Chief TimVasquez would like to thank the community for its outpouring of love and support.
