A Houston, Texas police officer who died during the floods of Hurricane Harvey was laid to rest today.
Sixty-year-old Sergeant Steve Perez was laid to rest at the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. A motorcade of officers led the procession to the church.
Police officers saluted as Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner arrived and shook police officers hands as he walked into the church. Shortly thereafter, Perez’s widow arrived wearing a black veil with family members by her side. Texas Governor Greg Abbot attended the service.
Perez died during Hurricane Harvey as he was trying to get to work despite the dangerous flood waters.
