Private and public memorials have been scheduled for a reserve Virginia police officer who was found dead this month.
Waynesboro police say a private service will be held on Sunday in Staunton for 45-year-old Kevin Quick. A public memorial will be conducted Monday in Charlottesville at the John Paul Jones Arena. Quick was an avid fan of University of Virginia sports.
Quick's body was found a few miles northwest of Richmond one week ago. Six days earlier, he failed to show up to visit his girlfriend and their 4-month-old daughter.
Police investigators have not released the cause of Quick's death.
Four people face felony gang participation charges in the case. Two others have been charged with stealing Quick's sport utility vehicle.
Police say they expect to file more charges.
Each time a new reserve office needed training, Waynesboro police liked to team the rookie up with Kevin Quick. They knew he would set the right example.
Waynesboro police Sgt. Brian Edwards says Quick's value as a mentor was just one of the positive traits he exhibited in his professional and personal life. Edwards describes Quick was pleasant, unflappable, reliable and devoted to his family.
The 45-year-old Quick was found dead last Thursday, six days after he failed to show up as expected to visit his girlfriend and their 4-month-old daughter.
Nobody has been charged with murder, but two people have been charged with stealing his SUV and four others have been charged with gang participation in connection with the case.
