The 37-year-old died after losing control of his Harley Davidson while riding at Lara on June 6.
Planning for the worst, detectives and general duties officers joined their highway patrol colleagues and officers from the special response teams and mounted police in flocking to Skilled Stadium yesterday morning.
football ground acted as the police
base for the day.
Mourners many donning black armbands honouring their lost brother "Jeffro" began arriving at the Grayling St clubhouse hours before official proceedings began.
