Illinois community gives homeless man proper funeral

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) – Acquaintances of a homeless man who died in southwestern Illinois are coming together to give him a proper funeral.

The Belleville News-Democrat (http://bit.ly/1yM0gSj) reports Randy Glore will be buried Monday in Belleville.

Someone found the 56-year-old’s body on March 27 behind a gas station dumpster. Overnight temperatures had fallen to near freezing. The official cause of death was exposure to the elements.

Those who knew Glore described him as friendly and a talented singer. He’d perform at open-mic nights at an area club.

The director of Mount Carmel Cemetery, Joe Hubbard, knew Glore. He supplied a gravesite.

Faith Baptist Church is providing a bus for friends to attend Monday’s service.

Steven Mueller Florist is providing the flowers. Mueller says “nothing makes” him “sadder than someone without flowers at his funeral.”
