Hundreds of people attended the funeral of a World War II veteran who police say was beaten to death by two teens last week in a random robbery.

88-year-old Delbert Belton was buried with full military honors Thursday at a cemetery in Spokane.

Friends remembered Belton as a kind man who loved to dance, play pool and work on cars. Dozens of American flags flew near his grave and a vocalist sang "We'll Meet Again."
