David Disch of Virginia Beach told WTKR he was waiting the Hardee’s drive-thru around 11 a.m. Saturday when he spotted a black Bliley’s hearse drive by and then park in a back corner of the parking lot. He said two employees then got out and walked inside the Hardee’s.
“After I got my food I went around behind it to confirm what I had seen, a flag-draped coffin inside,” Disch said. “You couldn’t miss it.”
Bliley’s Funeral Home’s Ceremony and Planning Team Manger Bill Carter confirmed the hearse was carrying the body of Bobby Hill for a 1 p.m. service at Rosewood Memorial Park in Virginia Beach from the company’s headquarters in Richmond.
According to Hill’s obituary, he is a retired Master Sergeant with the United States Air Force.
Disch said when he realized it was a serviceman’s casket that “added to the fire.”
As a result, he said he snapped photos of the hearse and posted them to Facebook.
