Excerpts from ABC7Chicago.com:

A funeral was held Wednesday for Edward Singleton, the second Chicago firefighter to die from coronavirus complications. He passed away April 14 at age 55 and leaves behind a wife and two adult children.

While a traditional funeral service is not possible during these times, immediate family was allowed inside the funeral home while friends and fellow firefighters remained in their parked vehicles outside. A live stream allowed loved ones to join in mourning. Following the service, a procession accompanied Singleton’s hearse to Mt. Hope Cemetery.

As of today, 130 Chicago firefighters have been diagnosed with COVID-19. 

Both Chicago Fire Department deaths were declared in the line-of-duty, so their families could access additional benefits.
