MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A young Montgomery police officer was laid to rest Wednesday morning after funeral services attended by hundreds of his fellow officers, city officials and ordinary citizens.
Officer Joshua Broadway was killed in the line of duty.
Late in the evening of January 15th Officer Broadway was traveling through a busy Montgomery intersection when another vehicle slammed into his patrol car. Broadway held to life for more than a week in a Montgomery hospital before doctors declared him brain-dead last Sunday.
On Wednesday family, friends and a host of police officers remembered the young officer for his dedication to family and his short time on the force.
The service was held at Frazer United Methodist Church and the song "Precious Lord Take My Hand" was chosen by the Broadway family to be sung. The man who sang the song: Josh's grandfather, James Lane.
"We thank you Father for the short life...for this our grandson, our son our brother...our dear friend. We're glad he was able to serve the community...for the short time that he did," Lane told the crowd.
Lane led the service and thanked everyone who helped the family during their tough time. "We're delighted for the community support...maybe you didn't know Josh...but you're here and we're thankful," he said.
Interim Montgomery Mayor Charles Jinright also spoke at the service telling the mourners, "The peace I have is that he will live on...and the family needs to know he will live in our hearts. Standpoint of the city of Montgomery - he will live on in our hearts in the Police department and we appreciate and thank you for letting Josh serve us."
A close friend of Josh's, and a fellow Montgomery Police officer named Adam Pilgreen, took comfort in knowing, "...he [Broadway] is with his savior Jesus Christ and one day we will meet again."
Officer Joshuah Patrick Broadway was just 21-years-old.
