Coroner releases plans for funeral to honor homeless veterans

Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher’s office has released funeral arrangements for a homeless veteran that died while living in a makeshift encampment near Lexington several weeks ago. Fisher’s office has said that another indigent veteran whose remains had been unclaimed will be laid to rest during the same service.

Funeral service for Mr. Dennis Reidy, the homeless U.S. veteran found deceased off Orchard Street in Lexington, has been scheduled for noon on February 23, 2018 at Fort Jackson National Cemetery. He will receive full military honors, according to the coroner.

Fisher said that due to the dedication of Mr. Steve Goulet of American Legion Post 193, who was instrumental in the coordination of arrangements, Mr. Reidy will receive the posthumous respect that he earned through his sacrifice for our nation. Coroner Margaret Fisher and her staff said they are honored to have assisted with these arrangements.

Several veteran groups, in addition to the American Legion, will be in attendance at Mr. Reidy’s funeral. The outpouring of concern and generosity regarding Mr. Reidy has been tremendous according to Fisher, and she said she would again like to express her appreciation. The public is invited and encouraged to attend this service and to pay their respects to Mr. Reidy as he is laid to rest.

Another indigent U.S. Veteran from Lexington County, Mr. Raymond Gerard, will also be honored and interred at this service.
