John McCain's remains were laid to rest on Sunday in a private ceremony at the US Naval Academy attended by his family, close friends and former classmates, the Daily Mail reports. 


His tearful widow Cindy laid her head on his casket and his sons embraced as the family said their last goodbyes to the longtime politician.

 

McCain, who died on August 25 at the age 81 after a year-long struggle against brain cancer, was interred in a private ceremony in the academy's grassy cemetery overlooking the Severn River.


It was a day of privacy and ceremony, focusing on his military life. 


McCain, the son and grandson of four-star admirals, graduated from the Naval Academy in 1958 and it was at the prestigious Annapolis that he chose to be laid to rest.  

His remains were carried by horse-drawn carriage to his final resting place on Sunday after a five-day procession that served as a final call to arms for a nation he warned could lose its civility and sense of shared purpose.


The missing man formation flew overhead, signaling the end of his private burial. 


His flag-draped coffin was taken from the U.S. Naval Academy Chapel to the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery, where the late senator was laid to rest next to his Naval Academy classmate and lifelong friend, Admiral Chuck Larson.

 

Cindy McCain and the McCain children walked behind the caisson, in a procession led by sailors in their white uniforms. 


The private ceremony in Annapolis, Maryland, was as carefully planned as the rest of McCain's farewell tour, which began in Arizona after he died on August 25 from brain cancer and stretched to Washington. 


Jack McCain, who was a steady presence in white Navy uniform by his mother's side the past five days, paid tribute to his father in the private ceremony.


He wore his father's Navy wings while doing so, the Arizona Republic reported.
