George Floyd’s funeral takes place today, and the father-of-three will be laid to rest in his hometown.
After a poignant memorial service in Minneapolis – where the bouncer was killed – his coffin is on its way to Houston, Texas.
A private funeral will take place to say farewell to George Floyd in Houston, Texas, on Tuesday, June 9.
Retired boxing champ Floyd Mayweather generously offered to cover the funeral expenses, and the family accepted.
The former boxer sent a £70,000 cheque to pay for funeral costs as it’s what “he feels is right in his heart”.
According to ABC13, the funeral will start from 11am CDT on Tuesday, June 9, at The Fountain of Praise Church.
Floyd is expected to be buried at the Houston Memorial Gardens in Pearland.
