Dozens of people lined South Broadway in Geneva on Wednesday afternoon to wave flags, salute and shed a tear for Pfc. Michael Metcalf, who was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan on April 22.
He was assigned to Company A, 2nd Battalion, 504th Infantry Division, and had been in Afghanistan only two weeks when the incident occurred.
Metcalf’s body arrived at Cleveland Hopkins Wednesday afternoon and was transported by the Zaback-Ducro Funeral Home to Ashtabula. The Ohio State Highway Patrol, Ashtabula City Police and Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Department provided an escort. J.P. Ducro said about 200 motorcyclists also joined the procession at Cleveland.
