UTICA, N.Y. -- The community came together one final time to remember a man who committed his life to this area.

Wayne Smoulcey was honored with a procession Wednesday after his funeral.

Many members of local police and fire departments stood at attention as Smoulcey took his final ride back to the Willowvale firehouse where he served as chief.

Smoulcey was also an Oneida County sheriff's deputy.

“Now at his passing it's important that we get together again and show support for Wayne and his family. He was a very dedicated member of our community, fire chief, member of the sheriff's patrol, dedicated many, many hours to serving the community, and we want to demonstrate our support for the family,” said former New Hartford Fire Chief David Reynolds.

Smoulcey is survived by his wife, a son, and a daughter on the way.
