Mourners lined the route on Springfield’s north end today as a long line of fire trucks and other emergency vehicles led a procession for Chicago firefighter Sean Sloe. He was laid to rest after funeral services this morning in Springfield.
Sloe was killed last week in a motorcycle crash on Interstate 55 at the Clear Lake Avenue exit.
He had been a firefighter and paramedic in Chicago, but often spent time in Springfield, where he grew up and where his brother serves as a firefighter. Burial took place at Roselawn Cemetery, just east of Springfield.
