Funeral procession heads north on I-5 at 145th

Northbound I-5 was closed for 20 minutes Thursday morning as the funeral procession for Seattle Fire Lieutenant Luis Batayola traveled from Seattle to Mountlake Terrace, where services were held.

Today we remembered and honored Lt. Luis Batayola with a Line of Duty Death funeral service, after he passed from a work-related illness (cancer) in November 2021.

Shoreline Fire lined the 145th overpass

Freeway overassesses were lined with fire vehicles and firefighters, who saluted as the procession went by.

We thank our partner agencies at the Shoreline Fire Department, Seattle Police Department and other police agencies for helping us to honor our beloved member along the procession route.

He was well known for his time serving on the department’s HazMat team, and later spent his final assignment at Engine 38. 

Seattle Firefighters Pipes and Drums lead the procession under the arch.

He was with Seattle Fire for 37 years, where he served residents of Seattle first as a firefighter and then as a lieutenant.

As the procession arrived at the Nile Country Club, it was greeted by fire officers.
