Funeral Services Held for Kelley Chase
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK- - Friends and family say their goodbyes to Oklahoma City Police recruit Kelley Chase.
Chase died two weeks ago after receiving a head injury during a training exercise with Oklahoma City Police.
Chase was a member of the United States Air Force for fifteen years, before becoming a recruit with the Oklahoma City Police Department.
Those who knew him best say he was a hard worker, and was always willing to help anyone in need.
"I've asked several of his friends how they would describe Kelley, and they said he was a joy to be around, that he gave good advice, he was a hard worker, and he was a great man" says Greg Giltner, a Chaplain with Oklahoma City Police.
Chase received full military honors, and family members received an American flag from members of the Air Force at the funeral.
A rider-less horse, and a gun salute were held outside of the church to help honor Chase's life.
Oklahoma City Police are still investigating the training session where Chase was injured.
Since his injury, Oklahoma City police say they have made changes to the training .
Recruits must now wear helmets during the sessions to prevent any other head injuries to recruits.
Chase's remains will be taken to his home state of New Mexico.
