Hundreds of mourners paid their respects today in Modesto to California Department of Transportation employee Donald Lichliter.
Lichliter, a Modesto resident, died last Thursday when he was hit by a truck as he worked along Highway 99 near Lodi.
Lichliter's funeral service was held at First Baptist Church at 12th and Needham streets.
A procession this afternoon headed from the church to Kansas Avenue, then to Highway 99 and ended up at Burwood Cemetery in Escalon.
