Janklow Procession En Route To Sioux Falls


The procession honoring Former South Dakota Governor Bill Janklow is on its way to Sioux Falls for an evening prayer service.


More than 450 people filled the state capitol in Pierre during a public memorial service where several state dignitaries spoke of their Janklow memories, including Governor Dennis Daugaard, Supreme Court Justice Steven Zinter, former Supreme Court Justice Judith Meierhenry, former State Lawmaker Lars Herseth, and former Legislator and Secretary of Agriculture Larry Gabriel.

Bagpipes, an F-16 flyover and the song Taps played as the casket and family left the capitol building following the 50-minute service.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol is escorting the procession to Sioux Falls through Fort Pierre on its way to Interstate-90 and then through several other communities.
