The Tallahassee Police Department has announced final arrangements for 34-year-old Officer Christopher Fariello. His “Celebration of Life” will be held Wednesday at 11 a.m. at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center.

The service is open to the public. Doors will open at 10 a.m. and parking will be available at the surrounding FSU parking lots and garages.

The funeral procession will begin at approximately 9:20, leaving from the Governor’s Square Mall Sears parking lot. The procession will go along Blairstone Rd., Park Ave., and Magnolia Dr. to 7th Ave. past police headquarters. The procession will then go down Monroe St. to Jefferson St. to the civic center.

Fariello was killed in a crash on Capital Circle NW last week. Investigators say he was hit head-on by a fleeing suspect who is accused of shooting three family members. 37-year-old Tyrone Cleveland is being held without bond in the Leon County Detention Facility on half a dozen charges related to the shooting and the crash.

TPD says the funeral will be streamed live on the City of Tallahassee’s YouTube page.
