The funeral for a 45-year-old Markham firefighter who was murdered in a weekend stabbing will take place on Friday.
A service will be held for Dominic Parker at The Bridge, a church at 5540 16th Ave. in Markham, at 4 p.m., family spokesman Jay Michaels confirmed Tuesday. A gathering for friends and family will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Balmy Beach Club in the Beach neighbourhood.
The service has been set as police continue their investigation into Parker’s death. The firefighter and former military reservist was stabbed in the head at a Danforth cafe early Saturday night and died of his wounds Monday.
Michaels praised the work of the police.
