Hundreds honor DC Navy Yard victim at funeral

LA PLATA, Md. (AP) — Hundreds of people have gathered to celebrate the life of a federal worker and lifelong Washington Redskins fan who was gunned down at the Washington Navy Yard last week.

Kenneth “Bernard” Proctor, a utilities engineer at the Navy Yard who worked for the federal government for more than two decades, was remembered as a loyal father, friend and public servant at his funeral in La Plata, Md. The 46-year-old left behind two sons.

Another funeral was planned Wednesday for Arthur Daniels of Washington. He was a handyman and father of five who was working for a furniture contractor when he was shot.

They were among 12 people killed by a gunman in the shooting massacre Sept. 16.
