Above, Gov. Lincoln Chafee, Providence Mayor Angel Taveras, Public Safety Commissioner Steven Pare and Providence Police Chief Hugh Clements stand at attention across the street from St. Mark’s Church for the funeral of Patrolman John Reposa Jr. Below, the casket containing Reposa’s body is borne into the church by fellow Providence police officers. Reposa, who attended Jamestown schools, died when his motorcycle collided with a car on North Road two weeks ago. About 400 people sat in pews inside the church, while another 150 were outside listening to the Rev. William O’ Neill.
