HAVERHILL- Mayor James J. Fiorentini, acting in conjunction with Police Chief Alan DeNaro and Public Works Director Michael Stankovich, has directed various City departments to make special preparations for one of the largest funerals to be held in the City’s history.
State Police Captain Richard J. Cashin, 52, was killed when his car hit a utility pole on Route 1 in Saugus while on duty Wednesday morning.

Calling hours will be held from 2PM to 7PM on Sunday, February 1 inside Sacred Hearts Church on South Main Street. The funeral Mass is scheduled for Monday, February 2 at 11AM at Sacred Hearts Church as well.
The Mayor, in coordination with the Governor’s office, ordered all City flags at half-staff on Monday.

On Sunday, February 1, Route 125/ South Main Street through Bradford Square will be closed from 3PM-5PM, possibly earlier. Over 1,000 attendees are anticipated for the wake, including Governor Deval Patrick and Lieutenant Governor Tim Murray.
