SOMERS - A Somers man found dead in the woods six days after going missing was mourned at his funeral Tuesday.

Funeral services for Gary McKeon, 67, were held at St. John the Evangelist Church in Mahopac.

McKeon, who suffered from Parkinson's disease and dementia, walked out of his Somers home on Mountain View Drive almost two weeks ago. Six days later, tree trimmers found his body in the woods just a block from his house. McKeon's son and brother say they are very grateful to all the people who helped them search for him.
