PUNTA GORDA — The CCSO has provided maps that indicate the designated parking areas and the procession route for the funeral of Cpl. Brad Murray. Both the viewing, which will be today, and the funeral Friday will be at Deep Creek Community Church, 1500 Cooper St. in Punta Gorda. The viewing today is from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. There is no designated parking for today’s viewing.
However, during the funeral on Friday at 10 a.m., the church’s parking lot has been designated for parking of Murray’s family and CCSO command staff. An adjacent parking lot located between the church and Charlotte High School has been set aside for parking by other CCSO employees. The nearby parking lot adjacent to CHS’ football stadium has been set aside for parking by all others attending the services. At the conclusion of the funeral services, the procession will leave the church, traveling north on Cooper Street to the intersection of Marion Avenue (U.S. 17). The procession will turn left onto Marion to the intersection of southbound U.S. 41. It will continue south on U.S. 41 through Punta Gorda to the intersection of North Jones Loop Road, where it will turn left until reaching Indian Springs Cemetery Road, where it will turn right. It will proceed left onto Greenlawn Avenue into Charlotte Memorial Cemetery. Parking will be available along both Indian Springs Cemetery Road and Greenlawn Avenue (not on the grass along Greenlawn within the cemetery). Additional parking has been made available by Walmart Super Center along the south side and back of the building.
