Benjamin “Benjie” Riggs funeral
BRADLEY COUNTY firefighters carried 40-plus year member of Bradley County Fire-Rescue Benjamin “Benjie” Riggs to his final resting place, with one more trip on one of the new fire engines. His funeral was held Thursday at Waterville Baptist Church. Riggs also played many other volunteer roles in the community during his lifetime. He died unexpectedly Monday morning. The funeral procession traveled by the downtown Bradley County Fire Station No. 8 before making its way to Hilcrest Memorial Gardens. Banner photo, GREG KAYLOR
