SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) - The funeral for slain U.S. Border Patrol Agent, Nicholas Ivie will be held at 10 a.m., Monday, Oct. 8 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints meetinghouse, 2100 Yaqui Street, Sierra Vista. 

The body of Nicholas Ivie will arrive at the meetinghouse at 8:30 a.m., following which there will be a special horse drawn procession by the Border Patrol. The meeting is expected to last approximately one and a half hours.

 “Anyone desiring to attend the service is welcome," said Kevin Goates, Ivie family spokesman, in a news relese. "Due to a possible overflow situation, two additional meetinghouses in Sierra Vista will broadcast the funeral via closed circuit television. We will also broadcast funeral services to Bisbee and Douglas meetinghouses to minimize travel time for Border Patrol agents who wish to attend from those locations.”

Those attending the funeral on Yaqui Street are asked to be in their seats at least 20 minutes before the beginning of the service. Maps will be provided to other meetinghouses if the chapel reaches capacity seating.

No cameras or recording equipment may be used inside the chapel, in accordance with normal church policy. There is also no smoking allowed on church grounds.

A second funeral service in Utah and a memorial service to be held in Southern Arizona will be announced at a later time.
