Slain Colorado officer remembered for service to others

LAFAYETTE, Colo. (AP) — Officer Eric Talley has been remembered as a man of faith who put others first, long before he was credited with saving lives in a shooting at a Colorado supermarket. Over 1,000 people gathered to honor Talley at a memorial service near Boulder on Tuesday. Speakers remembered the 51-year-old father of seven for helping someone with a flooded basement and collecting memorabilia for a boy with cancer who wanted “police stuff” for Christmas. His police chief said Talley’s personnel file was filled with thank you letters from people he had helped during his decade with the department. Besides Talley, nine others were killed in the March 22 shooting in Boulder.
