A funeral is expected to take place in London Thursday for a terrorist sympathizer who was killed last week in a high-stakes police standoff.

Aaron Driver was killed by a gunshot last Wednesday in Strathroy after making a martyrdom video that suggested he was planning to detonate a homemade bomb in an urban centre.

The 24-year-old had been under a court order not to associate with any terrorist organizations or to use a computer or cellphone.

The London Muslim Mosque has been offering Driver's family advice on planning the service according to Islamic traditions but says the funeral will not be held at any Muslim institution in the city, nor will any local imam preside.

"We're partly respecting his wishes because we're going to have an imam there to say the prayers, but we are Christians so we're going to have something for us as well, right. So, we're combing the two services," says Aaron's father, Wayne Driver.

Driver arrived in London on Monday to help take care of funeral proceedings.

He declined to be interviewed on camera but the retired military man says he's grateful to friends and neighbours who have been helping his daughter.

"The house, of course as you could imagine was a mess after the policemen went through and the neighbours helped out, put the house back together for my daughter. So we've had some people together to help us out. We've had meals made for us, things like that. People have been reaching out," adds Driver.

Driver also says the funeral for Aaron will be brief with a grave-side only service.

"We're anticipating about 10-15 minutes, and then we'll lay him to rest and we'll be going on with our lives. Of course he'll always be in our memories and our thoughts and our hearts," says Driver.
