A public memorial service for fallen Trooper Sean M. O’Connell will be held Thursday at 1 p.m. at Comcast Arena in Everett, the Washington State Patrol announced Monday.
The service will be open to the public.
Prior to the service there will be a procession of family, law enforcement and other emergency responders. The procession will begin at the southbound Smokey Point Rest Area on I-5 at Milepost 207.
The departure time and exact route for the procession are still being determined, but motorists should be aware of possible traffic delays anytime after mid-morning on Thursday.
WSP says in the meantime, if you would like to honor Trooper O’Connell you can bring flowers or mementos to the WSP District Headquarters at 2700 116th Ave NE, in Marysville.
