FORT WAYNE, Ind. – A funeral home says it will take care of a funeral for a veteran, who has no known relatives.
There isn’t much known about 74-year-old James Beavers.
Beavers died on Nov. 23 and his body was discovered four days later by a neighbor.
He was a disabled Vietnam War veteran and was a very private person.
A neighbor, who did not want to be identified, said the man was a good friend of hers, but kept to himself.
He was an orphan, he never married and never had any children, according to WANE.
Officials say following the funeral, a burial with full military honors will take place at Riverview Cemetery.
“We don’t know how many people will come but I would encourage them to come,” said David McComb, president of McComb & Sons. “This gives a way to not only honor Mr. Beavers but other people, POW and MIA people. I think it’s a great way to honor them.”
Services will be held at 2 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 17 at D.O. McComb & Sons Lakeside Park Chapel, 1140 Lake Ave. in Fort Wayne.
