Candlelight Vigil For Officer Decker 04 Dec 12

The residents of Cold Spring began the healing process Monday with a candlelight vigil.

WJON reports community members gathered outside of Wenner’s Funeral Home to sing, pray, and remember officer Tom Decker. Lisa Stukey organized the event. Stukey says she didn’t know officer Decker well, but he made an impression on her about a year ago when she thought she had an intruder in her home.

Visitation for Decker is scheduled for this afternoon (Tuesday) at 4:00 p.m. at the St. Boniface Catholic Church. The funeral service is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. Wednesday at the St. John’s Abbey and University Church in Collegeville.

Officer Tom Decker was shot and killed late Thursday night while responding to a welfare check.

Thirty-four-year old Ryan Larson has been arrested in the case.

Charges may be filed this morning.
