John “Johnny Mac” McDonald was buried at Quantico National Cemetery on Friday. But not before he was remembered by his colleagues from the Stafford Volunteer Fire Department, the Stafford County Fire and Rescue Department, and several other area fire departments.

The Stafford’s sheriff’s office closed a portion of Va. 610 Friday afternoon as the procession moved its way from Mount Ararat Baptist Church where the memorial service was held to the cemetery.

McDonald was a fire chief at Stafford Volunteer Fire Department and worked as a career firefighter in Washington, D.C.
