Family members of a Yorba Linda marine, killed in Afghanistan last week are asking the public to join them in paying tribute to their fallen son.

Lance Corporal Rick Centanni and fellow Yorba Linda resident Sergeant Major Robert Cottle were killed by a roadside bomb on March 24th.

Centanni's family is asking the public to line the funeral procession route that is scheduled next week. The procession will go from Saint Martin's church in Yorba Linda to Riverside National Cemetary, passing the schools that Centanni attended.

Centanni was the son of a Santa Ana police sergeant. The 19-year-old marine also wanted to be a police officer.
