A former soldier, killed in a crash on 490, will be laid to rest today. 

Former Sergeant Darren Manzella's funeral will be held at Saint Dominic's Roman Catholic Church in Brocton starting at 11 a.m.

Manzella died Thursday night in a crash on Route 490 near Exit 25 when he was hit while pushing his car following a separate crash.

Manzella was discharged from the military in 2008 for "homosexual admissions." Since his discharged, he was a vocal critic of the policy which has since been rescinded.
