Over 1,000 people gathered in Daphne to remember 72-year-old Bailey Yelding, former mayor of Daphne who died at his home Tuesday after a battle with cancer.

WALA-TV reports well-wishers gathered at the Daphne Civic Center Friday for Yelding's funeral.

Yelding — who was the first black mayor of Daphne — has also served as an assistant school principal and city councilman. He was a member of Macedonia Missionary Church and was buried at Macedonia Memorial Gardens.
