Family and friends of murdered Waynesboro Police Reserve Captain Kevin Quick are paying their final respects during a private visitation at a Staunton church Sunday evening.

Law enforcement from across central Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley are preparing to lead Kevin Quick's final patrol home.

Funeral services are set to start Monday morning with a public memorial in Charlottesville.

Community members have the chance to come and pay tribute to Quick's life.

Waynesboro police say they are holding the service in the University of Virginia's John Paul Jones Arena because they don't want anyone to be left out.

Monday's funeral for Quick is taking place in three parts, starting with a memorial service at 10:30 in the morning on the floor of the arena. Waynesboro police are expecting a large crowd.

This is the first time in more than 30 years that a member of the Quick family is not part of the police department's active force.

Quick's colleagues are planning to stand by his side the entire day.

"On Kevin's final patrol, we will be with him every step of the way, until he is laid to rest," said Sgt. Brian Edwards. "That is our duty to our fallen comrade and we're going to have enough people there and make sure that he is not alone."

UVA police anticipate an increase in traffic around the arena Monday morning. There are no planned road closures for the service, but officers will be controlling traffic signals to help with traffic.

The memorial service will be followed by a private service and burial for Quick at the family's church.

Waynesboro police are planning to help cover the costs of this funeral with contributions through a foundation.
