Richardson Police and Fire department personnel lined up Monday to honor and salute former Congressman Sam Johnson as his funeral procession traveled down Greenville Avenue and passed by the Public Safety Campus. Later, the U.S. Air Force’s Thunderbirds flew over the funeral at Restland Memorial Park in a “missing man formation” to honor Johnson, a decorated war hero and former military aviator.

Congressman Johnson was a supporter of the City’s public safety efforts and visited Richardson’s National Night Out events.
