MONROVIA, Calif. -- A 25-year-old San Francisco Giants fan killed during a post-game dispute in the Dodger Stadium parking lot was laid to rest Saturday.

More than 600 mourners, including Harley-Davidson bikers and several Los Angeles Dodgers executives, said goodbye to Marc Antenorcruz, a sophomore at Mount San Antonio College, described as sensitive and caring.

"Marc, it's been over a week since God made the choice to call you," said his father, Alan. "The love we have for each other and for God will last forever. I will not say goodbye, but until we meet again.

"Salamat, ( Thank you, in the Philippine language of Tagalog) my son."

Antenorcruz was shot once in the upper body while heading for his car after a Sept. 19 Dodgers-Giants game. Police said the shooting followed an argument between the Covina man, two men and a woman, over the teams.

Police arrested South Gate resident Manuel Hernandez, 33, arresting him for investigation of murder. A second man, 19-year-old Pete Marron, whom police believe has fled to Northern California, was being sought for murder. Los Angeles City Council members issued a $25,000 reward for information leading to Marron's arrest.

At Live Oak Cemetery, a Giants flag sent by the team covered Antenorcruz's coffin. Antenorcruz, whose nicknames were "Mac," "Bug Eyes" and "Bozo," became a Giants fan while attending school in the Bay Area.

Twenty Harley-Davidson bikers escorted the funeral procession from the church. Antenorcruz's mother, Char, who rides a Harley, said her son had just bought his first car, a Mustang, but wanted to buy a motorcycle next.

A Pink Floyd song, "Wish You Were Here," was sung during the funeral, honoring a request Antenorcruz made years ago, said his mother.
