Family, friends and officers say goodbye to Port St. Lucie officer George Larson Lee Rehm Saturday

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - Funeral services took place Saturday morning for the Port St. Lucie police officer who died earlier this week from a heart attack.

Family, friends and fellow law enforcement officers packed Morning Side Church in Port St. Lucie to say goodbye to Officer George Larson Lee Rehm.

Rehm's wife Amanda was one of first to speak about her husband who passed away from a heart attack on July 9th.

"I didn't get to say goodbye like I wished," said Amanda. “Lee left this world knowing how much he meant to me, Larson and his daughter Gabrielle."

She also brought laughter to the room as she talked about Rehm's spirit.

Rehm spent more than a decade with the Post St. Lucie Police Department.

"It's really truly an honor to be allowed to stand here and represent lee's other family, police family,” said Chief John Bolduc.

Rehm worked several years under Sgt. Matthew Pietrzak, who said, "He was a go getter, he had a heart of gold, he'd do anything for you."

Another officer stated, "If you want to know where his spirit is, look no further than your own heart, for that us where you'll find the biggest smile knowing that he never left."

Officer Rehm was laid to rest at Rolling Oaks Cemetery.
