JOHNNY Hutch was grieving over the murder of his brother Eddie and son Gareth "quietly and sadly", but today he heard his funeral mass.
The 66-year-old brother of Gerry "The Monk" Hutch suffered a severe head injury last Tuesday.
He fell in his home near North Circular Road in Dublin, while the family celebrated Vera's birthday.
Johnny died in hospital Mater, surrounded by his family on Thursday.
Despite being not involved in crime, Johnny spent two attempts on his life after becoming the main target of the Canadian cartel after the murder of David Byrne at the Regency Hotel in February 2016.
His brother Eddie Hutch was killed in prison a day later, followed by John Gareth's son in May 2016.
Today, there was a strong presence in the vicinity of the Church of the Holy Family, when there were hundreds of grieving dignitaries who expressed their respect on Aughrim Street today.
His brother Patsy and son Jonathan, both innocent target of the Canadian cartel, helped bring the cross to a short distance from the family home to the church.
His wife, Vera, carried a picture of her husband as she walked with her daughters in front of the coffin, while a solitary windswitch led a parade.
The Garda helicopter carefully monitored the operations from the sky above it, while the armed guards were mixed with the crowd discreetly.
Today at the funeral there was no obvious sign of Johnny's brother Gerry Hutch or his nephew Patrick Hutch, who was released this year from the murder of Byrne at the Regency Hotel.
At the beginning of the mass symbols presented to Johnny's life on the altar, they included Guinness Canvas, a bottle of 7Up, an orange, a bag of chips, a newspaper and a mobile phone.
Father Paddy Madden told the Appellant: "What should be the day of the celebration for Johnny and Vera, has turned to the evening of sorrow.
"Last week he was traumatic at the end of traumatic times for Johnny's family."
In his homily, the clerk added: "The sudden death of Johnny Hutch is a devastating blow to his family, a family for which he has been a provider and protector for many years.
His ability to provide was strictly limited by completely unjustified and totally unjustified threats to his life and attempted assassination literally in his backyard.
"I was particularly affected by Johnny's own resilience and strength, especially after the death of his son Gareth and his brother Eddie in a few months ago some years ago.
"Tackling these losses has required supernumerary efforts, as it does for the whole family."

"Johnny wore his grief silently and sadly. I'm sure he was completely confused because he was deeply personal to him.
"The support he received, especially from Faith, was necessary, as it was for the whole family when they gathered together."
After the funeral, his coffin was brought to Glasnevin's cemetery where he was buried with his son Gareth, who was killed in Dublin in 2016.
