Funeral arrangements have been set for local war hero Bill Overstreet.
Visitation will be held from 4-7 p.m. Friday at Oakey's Roanoke Chapel.
A graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday at Evergreen Burial Park. A Memorial mass will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at Second Presbyterian Church.
Many of his neighbors didn't know it, but Bill Overstreet was a true American hero.
A highly decorated fighter pilot, he flew more than 100 missions over Europe during World War II.
Overstreet died Sunday at the age of 92.
A native of Clifton Forge and a longtime resident of Roanoke, Overstreet never sought recognition for himself, sharing the credit with others in the legendary 357th Fighter Group. But he received many accolades in Europe and the United States.
WDBJ7's Keith Humphry covered the ceremony four years ago, when the French Ambassador to the United States presented Overstreet with that nation's highest honor.
