COLUMBIA -- The South Carolina Department of Public Safety mourned the death of Trooper Daniel Keith Rebman Jr., who was laid to rest Sunday in Greenville. The funeral was held at Bob Jones University, and graveside services were held at Woodlawn Cemetery.
Trooper Rebman, who died in an Oct. 24 motor vehicle collision while on duty, was the 51st state trooper to lose his life serving the State of South Carolina.
Rebman had been a trooper with the South Carolina Highway Patrol since September 2016. He began his work with SCDPS in 2012 as a dispatcher in the SCHP Telecommunications Unit, and he went on to become a trooper.
Members from more than 15 state patrols from as far away as California came to pay their respects along with hundreds of state and local officers.
Rebman is survived by his wife, Michelle; three daughters; his parents, Daniel and Theresa Rebman of Georgia; a sister; and an extended family.
