Deputy Matt Miller: Hundreds of cops expected for deputy’s funeral

The thin blue line is a fragile one at it’s core.  Those serving our communities seem to be superheroes- yet one day they, too, will be called home to be with the Lord.  Though I have been critical of our area’s law enforcement of late for other issues, I want to make clear to all my respect for everyone who chooses to don a badge in service to our community.

I have a number of friends in attendance at this event- and Deputy Miller lost his life not too far from my home. May God bless Matt Miller’s family- and may they have comfort in the knowledge that the Lord whom called him home will one day reunite the Miller family along Heaven’s streets of gold.

Rest in peace, Deputy Miller- gone way too soon at 53.

Law-enforcement officers from around the state will join top state officials in Seminole County for today’s funeral for Deputy Matt Miller.

The funeral for Miller, a Seminole County deputy sheriff who was killed in a traffic crash last week, is set for 11 a.m. at Northland, A Church Distributed, 530 Dog Track Road, Longwood.

Activities at the church will begin at 8:30 a.m. when a hearse arrives with Miller’s body. There will be a formal ceremony to move the casket into the sanctuary, he said.

Guests are expected to begin arriving about 9:30 a.m., and an honor guard will arrive with Miller’s family between 10 a.m. and 10:15 a.m.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi and other dignitaries from Tallahassee will arrive about 10:30 a.m.

Miller, 53, was killed Dec. 26 at the intersection of Maitland Boulevard and Gateway Drive when his motorcycle collided with a car while he was trying to catch up to a speeding vehicle.

Northland Pastor Dr. Kevin Yurichko and Senior Pastor Joel Hunter will officiate at the service.

The service is expected to conclude about 12:45 p.m., but Dog Track Road will be closed at 12:30 p.m. to begin preparing for the funeral procession to Oaklawn Park Cemetery at H.E. Thomas Jr. Parkway and Rinehart Road in Lake Mary.

At least four law-enforcement helicopters will perform a flyover above the cemetery in the “missing-man” formation.

More than 250 law-enforcement motorcycles are expected to lead the procession as it travels east on Dog Track Road to U.S. Highway 17-92 and then north to Lake Mary Boulevard.

From there, the procession will travel west to Rinehart Road and north to H.E. Thomas Jr. Parkway. Northbound Rinehart Road will be closed from noon to 4 p.m. between Timacuan Boulevard and H.E. Thomas Jr. Parkway. Southbound lanes will be closed from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
