Marine Sgt. Daniel Vasselian

December 27th, 2013

On behalf of the Town of Abington, The Abington Police Department would like to provide you with some details in regards to the upcoming wake and funeral of Sgt. Daniel Vasselian.  As you probably know, Marine Sgt. Vasselian served our country with honor and gave the ultimate sacrifice on December 23, 2013 in Afghanistan.  Sgt. Vasselian’s body will be flown to Boston and return home to Abington with full honors on December 31st, 2013. 

As a town, we are asking that everyone that can come out will come out and line the streets when his procession passes by.  There will be more details to follow, however, we expect Sgt. Vasselian to arrive in Abington on December 31st, between 11:45 a.m and 12:15 p.m.  Sgt. Vasselian will be driven past his family home on Adams Street and eventually proceed to the Quealy Funeral Home at 116 Adams St.

On January 1st, 2014, Sgt. Vasselian will be waked during the hours of 3-7 pm and his funeral is scheduled for January 2nd, 2014 at 8:00 a.m. with mass in Saint Bridget’s Church at 9:00 a.m.   We again ask that you all come out and line the streets of Abington on the morning of the funeral mass as Sgt. Vasselian passes from the funeral home to Saint Bridget’s Church using Washington Street and again from St. Bridget’s to Mt. Vernon Cemetery via Rt. 58.

People wishing to hold a flag while Sgt. Vasselian’s procession passes by should be able to pick up their flag at the Abington Police Department or the Abington Fire Department prior to the days of events. 

The Abington Police Department will be providing constant updates in regards to Sgt. Vasselian’s return home, wake, funeral arraignments, and road closures using social media.  You can follow us on Twitter @AbingtonPDMass, or friend request the Abington Police Dept. on Facebook.  Please come out and support one of our own, a true hero who has supported us all!

        
Thank you
