Phillipsburg's finest will say a final farewell to one of their own Friday.

A funeral with full police honors will be held for former Patrolman Bob Amey.

He lost his battle with cancer this week.

Some 50-100 officers from New Jersey and Pennsylvania are expected to attend the funeral.

It gets underway Friday morning at 10:30 at Saint Mary's Church at 830 Fifth Avenue in Alpha, N.J..

Amey will be buried in the cemetery adjacent to the church.
