A funeral procession took place Thursday morning for Marshall County Sheriff Tom Chamberlin.
He passed away on Friday evening after a battle with cancer. A public viewing was held on Wednesday at Johnson-Danielson Funeral Home in Plymouth for Marshall County residents to pay their respects.
On Thursday morning, Chamberlin was transported from the funeral home to Plymouth Wesleyan Church for the services where he was accorded full honors. During the procession, students from Webster Elementary School lined Michigan Road to show their support for the family.
According to Marshall County Commissioner Kevin Overmeyer, flags were lowered to half-staff in Marshall County until the funeral services had been completed.
Marshall County has 30 days from the time of the Sheriff’s passing to install a new Sheriff. The candidate will be the responsibility of the Republican Party in Marshall County.
