Bacons hold quiet viewing

A private viewing of slain Abbotsford gangster Jonathan Bacon was held last Friday afternoon at Henderson’s Funeral Home in Langley.

It was announced discretely, and there were about 30 friends and family in attendance.

Henderson’s management said it has received no information about a funeral for Bacon, and suggested the family may conduct a private ceremony.

Henderson’s would not confirm media reports that Bacon’s body has been cremated.

It has since been reported by Vancouver media outlets that a funeral service for family and close friends has been cancelled.

Bacon, who police called a key figure in the Red Scorpions gang, was shot to death outside a Kelowna hotel and casino on Aug. 14.

Four people were in the vehicle with Bacon when he was killed.

Full-patch Hells Angel Larry Amero and Independent Soldier James Raich were both wounded, and a young woman was paralyzed when a bullet struck her neck. Another woman was also wounded.

Members of the police gang task force kept an eye on the viewing ceremony in Langley.
