A Mass of Christian Burial for John Patrick “J.P” Huling will be celebrated at 10 a.m., Tuesday, May 15, at St. Michael Church in Sharonville. Visitation is from 4- 9 p.m., today, May 14, at Moeller High School, 9001 Montgomery Road in Cincinnati. Sgt. Huling, an Explosive, Ordnance, Disposal (EOD) Technician with the U.S. Marine Corps, was killed in Afghanistan on May 6.
Huling, a 2004 graduate of Moeller High School, is survived by his wife, Patricia, parents John and Debbie, brother, Justin, and sister, Lauren Huling Coach
For the visitation at Moeller, the procession will take place at 3:15 p.m. According to the school’s website, the visitor locker room on the first floor closest to All Saints Church will be reserved for the family as a break room. The line for viewing will begin in the lobby, and guests will proceed down the length of the bleachers up the south end base line and then to the casket.
A spokesman for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati announced to Cincinnati media late Monday that the family of Sgt. John Patrick Huling requests that no recording devices, audio or video, be brought into church before, during, or after his funeral service on Tuesday morning. “The great archdiocesan community thanks you for respecting their wishes,” said Communications Director Dan Andriacco, who added: “St. Michael the Archangel Parish asks that electronic media not set up on church property. The campus is a small one. With the large crowd expected, parish officials believe that every square foot of space will be needed for parking and walking. In fact, shuttles are being set up to other parking locations to accommodate mourners.”
