Funeral Services for HPD Officer Richard M. Martin

The funeral for HPD Officer Richard K. Martin is today, May 22, 2015. The details are as follows.

The funeral will be at Grace Community Church, 14505 Gulf Freeway, and begin at 2 pm. The service is anticipated to run about an hour. The rendering of honors will occur outside, immediately following the service.  During this time all or portions of the inbound feeder road will be closed to traffic.  Uniformed police officers will be on hand to direct motorists.

There will be an HPD escort the hearse from George H. Lewis funeral home (1010 Bering Drive).  It will depart at approximately 10:15 a.m. and be escorted by HPD motorcycle officers to Grace Community Church.  Because it is an escort, not a procession, it is anticipated the impact to traffic should be minimal. 

At the conclusion of the ceremony, the hearse will be escorted back to George H. Lewis.  Officer Martin’s remains, under HPD escort, will depart the next morning (Saturday) for burial in Oklahoma.
