Percy Julian to close for Page funeral
With the funeral of Alfred “Doc” Page III set for 11 a.m. on Monday, Percy Julian Drive in Greencastle will be closed for part of the day on Monday.
The street will close in the area of Hopkins-Rector Funeral Home from Avenue B to Avenue D between the hours of 10 a.m. and approximately 1 p.m.
The closure will allow fire trucks to stage in the area in preparation for Page’s funeral procession following the service.
Page was in the fire service for 65 years, including time as an instructor for Indiana Homeland Security, Greencastle reserve firefighter and helping start Operation Life Putnam County.
Page’s procession, which will likely take place during the noon hour, will begin southbound on Percy Julian then west on Washington Street.
From Washington, the procession will turn south onto Indiana Street to pass the Greencastle Fire Department.
From Indiana, the procession will turn east on Hanna Street, then south on Bloomington Street, past Operation Life.
The procession will then turn westbound onto Veterans Highway before proceeding south on Cemetery Road to Forest Hill Cemetery.
Motorists are advised to be prepared for delays in these areas.
