ST. CLOUD -- A procession was held today in downtown St. Cloud honoring the late Assistant Police Chief Richard Wilson, who died of cancer at the age of 58.

Family, friends, and colleagues braved the strong winds and bitter cold to pay tribute to Wilson outside of the St. Cloud Police Department.

Countless squad cars, firetrucks and other emergency vehicles lined Saint Germain Street for blocks en route to the farewell ceremony.

Following the procession, a private service was held for Wilson's family at Daniel Funeral Home.
