Hundreds of mourners, police officers and sheriff's deputies from all over California assembled at Galt-Arno Cemetery on Thursday for the graveside service of Sacramento County Sheriff's Deputy Larry Canfield.
A brief but somber ceremony - including a bugler playing "Taps" and "Amazing Grace" performed by bagpipers - followed a memorial service at the First Baptist Church of Elk Grove. A procession of dozens of patrol cars and motor officers traveled south to Galt after the service, closing sections of Highway 99 and surrounding streets.
During the graveside service, fellow officers saluted as deputies folded the American flag that had covered Canfield's casket. The deputies presented the flag to Canfield's wife Michelle, and their two sons, Tylor and Bryce.
The service ended with a flyover by various emergency service helicopters.
Canfield was killed in Rancho Cordova on Nov. 12, when a car driven by an elderly man turned left in front of him as he attempted to pull over a traffic violator.
Following the public ceremony, the Canfield family had its own private graveside service.
