A funeral was held Wednesday for Philip Pagano, the executive director of Metra.

Friends and family gathered for a visitation Tuesday night at Davenport Funeral Home in Crystal Lake.

Pagano died last Friday after he stepped in front of an oncoming Metra train. His death came hours before the Metra board was scheduled to discuss his job status. Pagano had been accused of taking an unauthorized bonus.
