Orrin Hatch funeral details announced, Cache Valley burial confirmed
Long-time U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch will be buried with military rites at the Newton Cemetery on Friday, May 6, a family representative has confirmed.
Cemetery secretary Penny Douglass said she’s been in contact with the Larkin Mortuary in Salt Lake City, which is handling the Utah notable’s funeral arrangements, and she’s been told to expect a funeral procession to arrive in the northwest Cache Valley town between 4 and 5 p.m. that day.
Her understanding is that the procession will have a Utah Highway Patrol escort, and the senator will be laid to rest following a military salute. Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
