Yarmouth Officer Sean Gannon to be Laid to Rest Wednesday

Thousands are expected to say a final goodbye to a Yarmouth police officer killed in the line of duty last week.

The man to whom Yarmouth Police are referring to only as 125 - for the number of prior criminal charges he has on his Board of Probation criminal record in MA - turns into a "whole different person" when he gets angry.

Tributes from around the nation have poured in for slain Yarmouth police officer Sean Gannon. Rep. Shaunna O'Connell, a Taunton Republican, also told the Herald she supports reinstating capital punishment in MA, where the death penalty was outlawed in 1984.

In a great display of class, the Yankees put the Boston-New York rivalry aside and sent flowers to the Yarmouth Police Department in honor of fallen K-9 officer Sean Gannon.

The wake is from 4 to 8 p.m.at St. Pius X Church in South Yarmouth.

In his obituary, Gannon is remembered as a man "of high moral integrity, infectious humor, and collaborative work".

Gannon's dog, Nero, also was shot but underwent surgery and is recovering.
