Relatives, colleagues and friends joined members of the LAFD and other firefighting agencies for a funeral to honor the life of Kelly Wong, who died after a fall during a training exercise in downtown Los Angeles earlier this month. Firefighters walked in a somber processional behind a fire truck carrying Wong’s flag-draped casket to the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

“He was a big guy with a big heart,” LAFD Capt. Erik Scott said.
