ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) – Thunderstorms prevented the proper burial of a Marine who was killed in a hit-and-run crash in Tampa.
On Thursday, Private First Class Lagarian Sharkey was given the burial he deserved.
It comes three months after his death. Family could not lay him to rest at Bay Pines National Cemetery because of heavy rain.
“I was a bit sad, but I wanted it to be done properly. So today, that’s why we’re here now,” said his mother, Chavon Sharkey.
