Former ice skating champ, Nancy Kerrigan’s father was laid to rest Thursday in Stoneham, Massachusetts.

Daniel Kerrigan died Sunday of a massive heart attack, following an alleged violent altercation with his son Mark. He was 70-years-old.

Mark was subsequently charged with assault and battery on an elderly person resulting in serious bodily injury, to which he  pleaded not guilty in court Monday, and is currently under mental evaluation at Bridgewater State Hospital after being deemed a danger to himself. He was not present at the funeral.

Mourners at the packed St. Patrick’s Church were told Daniel loved his son, despite a troubled and tumultuous relationship. As RadarOnline.com previously reported Mark, an army veteran who, his lawyer claims, suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, was living in the basement of his parent’s home at the time of the fight and has a violent past.
