Funeral for slain Border Patrol agent set for Monday, open to public

SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. - The funeral for slain Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie will be held on Monday, October 8 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Sierra Vista, and will be open to the public.

The funeral begins at 10 a.m. and is expected to last for about one and a half hours, according to Stake President of the church, Kevin Goates. The church is located at 2100 Yaqui Street in Sierra Vista.

"Anyone desiring to attend the service is welcome," Goates said. "Due to a possible overflow situation, two additional meetinghouses in Sierra Vista will broadcast the funeral via closed circuit television. We will also broadcast funeral services to Bisbee and Douglas meetinghouses to minimize travel time for Border Patrol agents who wish to attend from those locations."

Those attending the service are asked to be in their seats at least 20 minutes before the beginning of the service. No cameras or recording equipment may be used inside the chapel, and no smoking is allowed on church grounds.

The body of Nicholas Ivie will arrive at 8:30 a.m., followed by a special horse-drawn procession by the Border Patrol. Details on a second funeral service in Utah and a memorial service in Southern Arizona will be announced at a later time.

Ivie was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints all his life. He served a two-year mission to Mexico, where he learned Spanish.
