LOVELAND, Colo. (CBS4) ― About 70 tow trucks took part in a procession from Broomfield to Loveland Saturday afternoon to honor a long-time tow truck owner.
Bob Swaney, known by the nickname "Cozy Bob," died last week from COPD, a lung disorder.
Friends and fellow tow truck drivers say he was loved by all.
"Bob was an incredible guy, a great tower, a good friend to all of us, he did many great things in the community and we all came out to pay our respects," tow truck driver Jim Scofield said.
The procession stretched for six miles, ending with Swaney's funeral at Centaurus High School.
Swaney owned Cozy Corner towing and Ken's Wrecker Service and was a member of the International Towing Hall of Fame.
