Funeral Procession for Sgt. Callan Tuesday

by | Jul 26, 2020

EG Police Sergeant Christopher L. Callan will be laid to rest Tuesday at the Rhode Island Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Exeter, following his untimely death last week while parachuting in Connecticut.

A procession will leave from the EG Police Department at 176 First Ave. shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday. The procession will travel through East Greenwich, west on First Avenue to Division Street, where it will turn east and continue to Main Street. The procession will proceed all the way down Main Street onto Post Road, with a right turn at Frenchtown Road. At South County Trail, the procession will turn left (south) and continue to Camp Fogarty, where there will be a brief ceremony. From there, the procession heads to Veterans Memorial Cemetery. The ceremony at Camp Fogarty is not open to the public.

Residents are welcome to pay their respects anywhere along the route.

Callan was a 15-year veteran of the EG Police Department. He’d served in the military before that and was an active member of the Rhode Island National Guard at the time of his death. You can read more about Sgt. Callan HERE.
