RIDGEWOOD, N.J. (AP) -- A town in northern New Jersey is planning a full police funeral for a 10-year-old boy.
Michael Feeney was named Ridgewood's honorary police chief for 2013 before succumbing to cancer on Friday.
The Hawes Elementary School fifth-grader had Ewing's sarcoma, a rare, aggressive and often fatal bone cancer that usually develops in children and young adults.
His funeral is scheduled for Tuesday.
His father, Jack Feeney, tells The Record that his son "squeezed 100 years into the 10 years that he lived."
The boy was scheduled to light the village's Christmas tree this week. Instead, hundreds of neighbors decorated the family's home while they were away.
The police department plans to name a future junior police academy after him.
