Officer Matthews remembered on Monday

Body

Hundreds of law enforcement officers from across the state joined together to remember one of their own Monday.

The body of Officer Richard Matthews was carried by a horse-drawn caisson to St. Mark’s Church on Eastwood Road.

The 28-year-old died last week after control of his vehicle while responding to a call.

“It was amazing, the caisson the horse and carriage, was absolutely amazing, the pipes, and drums did a beautiful job as well. I’ve been to many funerals unfortunately in my years, and this was one of the best,” said Robert Fey of the Charlotte Police.

“You hear the negative, but you never hear the positive until it’s took late. Obviously he made some great impact on people’s lives to include kids,” said Chief Ralph Evangelous of the WPD.

Trooper John King of the NC Highway Patrol added, “We lost a fellow member today, even though he worked for another organization, we are all brotherhood, and it was a real tough time today.”

Matthew’s family will hold private funeral services in his hometown of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Some Wilmington police officers are volunteering their time to escort his body back home.
