The tow truck of a driver killed by a gunman rode on a flat-bed truck to a cemetery in north Phoenix with an escort of dozens of other tow trucks.
The Monday morning procession to the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona honored Michael Psalidas began at 9 a.m. near 19th Avenue and Deer Valley Road.
The 49-year-old Army veteran was one of two men whom police said were killed by ex-convict Andrew J. Rael in separate shootings before Rael was killed by police in a March 10 shootout on Interstate 10 in Tempe.
"We're like a close-knit family and we take care of our own," said Robert Wesson, a co-worker.
Psalidas was gunned down March 9 outside a Buckeye auto-repair business.
Police said the other victim was Daniel Scott White, a 26-year-old convenience store clerk who was shot March 10 at the Glendale store where he worked.
