Services for Lt. Ricky Thurman will be held today at the First Baptist Church in Swainsboro at 2 p.m.
At 11 a.m., there will be a processional from Chapman Funeral Home to the church, with the procession passing through the Swainsboro Fire Station at the corner of Coleman and Moring Streets. Please use caution when traveling in the area at this time.
The funeral procession will leave from the First Baptist Church after the services, which, again, take place at 2 p.m., and will go to Eastbrook Cemetery on Highway 80 towards Twin City. The procession will be escorted by many trucks and firefighters in Thurman’s honor.
Please use caution when traveling these routes during these times, and please be respectful of this fallen hero.
