Posted by wlpo on January 28, 2015

Large crowds are expected to pay respect to a longtime Mendota firefighter killed while walking across a street.

Visitation for 62-year-old Tom Mahaffey is Wednesday at Holy Cross Church in Mendota with a mass Thursday morning at the church. Mahaffey died Sunday at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria after getting hit by a car while off-duty.

Members of the Mendota and Troy Grove Fire Departments will serve as honor guard and pallbearers.
