Public visitation for Marine Cpl. Daegan Page set for Thursday in Omaha

Thousands lined Omaha streets for the procession of Marine Cpl. Daegan Page.

Members of the public are invited to pay their respects to Cpl. Daegan Page this week ahead of the funeral service for the fallen Marine.

A public visitation will be held Thursday at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 13271 Millard Ave., from 5 to 8 p.m. Attendees should follow posted signs and enter through Door A.

A funeral is planned for 10 a.m. Friday, also at the church. The sanctuary is reserved for family and friends. Limited seating will be available for the general public. Interment will follow at noon at Omaha National Cemetery, 14250 Schram Road.

Military honors will be provided by the Marine CLB 451 Maintenance 1, Detachment Company.

A closed processional route will run from the church west on Millard Avenue to South 144th Street, according to a social media post from the Omaha Police Department. The route will continue south on 144th Street to the cemetery at 12450 Schram Road.

Traffic will be rerouted or delayed along the route, which police said will be closed from about 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday. Additional details on the procession and for organizations wishing to participate will be released later.

The family asks for donations to be made in Page’s memory at daeganpage.org.

Page was killed along with 12 other U.S. service members and at least 169 Afghans on Aug. 26 in a terrorist bombing at the Kabul airport in Afghanistan.

The 23-year-old Millard South graduate’s remains were returned to Omaha on Friday, and thousands of people lined the procession route. The next day, Husker football coach Scott Frost presented Page’s family with a Nebraska jersey before kickoff of the Nebraska-Buffalo game.
