Pennsylvania's longest serving Senator Arlen Specter was laid to rest on Tuesday after passing away from complications of non-hodgkin lymphoma.
The funeral was at a temple in Penn Valley, PA followed by burial in Huntingdon Valley.
Vice President Joe Biden was among the mourners along with former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell.
Specter, a Moderate Republican, who ran as a Democrat in a failed attempt for a final term, is also remembered as the member of the Warren Commission.
