Marine's funeral to include 1,500 flags

HANOVER -- Wednesday's funeral for Marine Lance Cpl. Chris Cosgrove, killed Oct. 1 while serving in Iraq, will include a procession through town and more than 1,500 flags.

Visitation will be held at Birchwood Manor, Jefferson Road, Whippany, from 1 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 9 p.m. Funeral services will be Wednesday at 11 a.m. at St. Vincent Martyr Church in Madison.

The funeral procession will travel Whippany Road to Park Avenue, passing Cosgrove's Trailwood neighborhood , to St. Vincent's Church in Madison and the Gates of Heaven cemetery in East Hanover.

Along the way, the procession will pass Whippany Park High School, where Cosgrove was a member of the Class of 2001. The high school's band and color guard in full uniform, the football team, cheerleaders and officers and representatives of the student body will stand outside the school as the procession passes, according to township committeeman Len Fariello.

The county has donated 1,500 flags and residents can line up along Whippany Road to view the procession, Fariello said.

Cosgrove was the first resident of the township to die on active duty in 39 years, Fariello said.
