Chris Kyle’s Funeral Procession to Pass Through Central Texas
The funeral procession for former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle will pass through Central Texas on I-35 headed for its final stop in Austin Tuesday morning and you can join others in paying tribute to the most lethal sniper in US history.
From the first time he picked up a game at the age of eight Chris Kyle was deadly with a rifle in his hands. From quails and dove in Texas as a child to 160 confirmed kills serving four tours in Iraq. An $80,000 reward was offered for his death, but it was at a gun range back home in Texas, far away from the battles of Iraq and military service, that a 25-year old man shot and killed the man the Iraqis called the "Devil of Ramadi". 7,000 people said goodbye at Cowboys Stadium Monday.
Thousands of people are expected to line the route from the DFW area to Austin, and there are several locations being reported throughout Central Texas where you'll find others paying tribute to an American hero. The funeral procession is expected to pass Temple sometime between 9:30 & 10:30. Take an early lunch and join us to honor an American hero.
