Hamburg / Silver Creek, N.Y. (WKBW) Funeral services were held today for 28-year old William Sager Jr. - the NY Air National Guardsman from the 107th Airlift Wing who was critically injured after being pushed down a flight of stairs inside Molly's Pub in Buffalo during early May.

Sager is a native of Silver Creek and died last week after spending more than two months in a coma.

As the funeral procession carrying his body traveled through the Village of Silver Creek to the Glenwood Cemetery, it passed through crowds of residents who lined streets with flags and signs.
