On Sunday afternoon, many people lined the streets from Chesapeake to South Point to give Tuc Church a hero's good-bye.
Leah Jane Keatley was one of Chief Warrant Officer Theodore Church's teachers. And to her, Tuc was one of those students you don't forget.
“He was always kind to help his fellow students,” said Keatley. “He was always the kind that was everybody's friend. There wasn't a person Tuc didn't like.”
It's that memory she came out to honor and she was not alone. All along Route 1, people lined the streets to say farewell and show support.
