Funeral services for murdered Tucson Police Officer Erik Hite

I'm writing this because I worked several scene calls with fallen TPD officer Erik Hite. Such a tragedy, Erik was loved and respected by everyone he came in contact with. Erik was a veteran of U.S. Air Force for 21 years and never got a scratch, he was a Security Policeman and a First Seargent. Erik joined the Tucson Police Department 4 years ago. Erik was gunned down in the line of duty Sunday June 1st . He was shot twice in the face. The same gunman also shot and injured 2 Pima Count Sheriff's Deputies. Erik was only 43 years old and he will be sorely missed by his family, his church, his peers, and especially those of us in the First Responding community. Erik leaves behind a wife, a 19 year old son, and a one year old baby. Erik was layed to rest yesterday and was buried with full military and polieman honors. Thousands went to the funeral and the procession was eleven miles long. GOD'S SPEED TO YOU OFFICER HITE, you will alwys be a true hero in my mind.
