Thousands lined Omaha streets for the procession of Marine Cpl. Daegan Page.

OMAHA — With space limited for the funeral of Marine Cpl. Daegan Page on Friday, Page’s family is allowing a local TV station to livestream the service.

KETV Channel 7 will carry Page’s funeral on its Facebook page and share it with other media outlets. The Omaha World-Herald plans to carry it on the newspaper’s website, Omaha.com.

The funeral is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 13271 Millard Ave., and is expected to last one hour. Only family and friends are invited to attend, and there will be no overflow facility, according to a statement from the Page family.

A committal ceremony will be held at Omaha National Cemetery at noon, with military honors provided by Marine Corps reservists from Marine Combat Logistics Battalion 451.

Because of limited space at the cemetery, the family is asking the public to pay respects along the closed processional route from the church to the cemetery, on Millard Avenue and South 144th Street.

The Omaha Police Department said that stretch of road will be closed from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., including the off ramps from Interstate 80 to Nebraska 50, and from Nebraska 50 to Nebraska 370.

OPD also is reminding those attending to obey parking rules, to avoid blocking driveways and intersections, and to get permission before parking in private lots.

Page, 23, was a 2016 graduate of Millard South High School who served in the 2nd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, based at Camp Pendleton, California. He was killed in the line of duty Aug. 26, in a suicide bombing that took the lives of nearly 200 people, including 13 U.S. service members.

Thousands of residents lined the processional route Sept. 10 when Page’s remains were returned to Omaha from the military mortuary at Dover Air Force Base, Delaware.
