A solemn procession
One of the more solemn roles performed by the Bethlehem Police Mounted Patrol happens on the rare occasion when they escort someone’s remains to a final resting place. On Feb. 11 the family and friends of Robert Kieffer, III put their loved one to rest in the Memorial Park Cemetery. Kieffer had passed away Jan. 29. Originating at the nearby Pearson Funeral Home, the procession included a number of Bethlehem police vehicles. It wound through the cemetery led by the Mounted Patrol which escorted the hearse, two in front and two behind. Kieffer’s son Robert Kieffer, IV is a sergeant on the force.
