The route to Midlawn Memorial Gardens Cemetery, Union, was lined with local Boy Scouts and residents who paid their respects to Sgt. Robert J. Traxel, 34, Union. Traxel died July 2 while performing training duties in support of the Beyond the Horizon Guatemala 2012 exercise. Although from the southern St. Louis County area, he and his wife recently had bought a house in Union. A motorcade escorted Traxel's body to the cemetery.
