Family and friends of the late Brigadier Chrispin Odhiambo gathered on Thursday at Consolata Shrine in Westlands to pay their last respects.
The requiem was held ahead of his burial at his home in Kendu Bay on Friday.
Brig Odhiambo, of the Kenya Air Force and formerly of the National Defence College, who was appointed the head NASD in December 2020, died at the Karen Hospital in Nairobi on Sunday last week after an illness, his family and colleagues said.
Before his death, he was the head of the newly created National Air Support Department.
Brig Odhiambo was in charge of the aircraft owned by the National Police Service, Kenya Wildlife Service, Kenya Forest Service, Kenya Power, Kenya Pipeline and Kenya Electricity Transmission Company Limited among other state agencies.
Brig Odhiambo is the third senior officer to die at the Wilson Airport based police unit this year.
Last month, Evans Ochieng, an Assistant Inspector General (AIG), and who was Col Rogers Mbithi’s deputy also died.
A few months earlier, former Airwing Director Eng John Patrick Owino also died after a short illness.
President Uhuru Kenyatta had in December presided over the official handover to the military the management of government civilian-owned planes in the country.
He later launched NASD at Wilson Airport in Nairobi.
