CINCINNATI — A 90-year-old military veteran who recently died and had no immediate family in the Ohio area was honored by thousands of residents who attended his funeral Saturday, cemetery officials said.
Perkins prepaid for his burial more than 20 years ago, WCPO reported. The vault company upgraded his vault. The cemetery asked members of the public to attend the funeral.
“We are humbled by the turnout,” cemetery officials said Saturday on social media.
Perkins’ flag will be delivered to his distant family.
