Mourners gathered yesterday in Pinehurst to say farewell to Lt. Stanley Klingenschmidt.

The 57-year-old Klingenschmidt was retired from the Southern Pines Police Department and had also taught Basic Law Enforcement Training classes at Sandhills and Montgomery Community Colleges. He was leading a charity ride for Special Olympics June 15 when he was killed in a single motorcycle crash on Capelsie Rd. just south of Troy.

Among those at yesterday’s funeral were hundreds of Stanley Klingenschmidt’s law enforcement colleagues from across the state. The service was held in Owens Auditorium at Sandhills Community College.
