Illinois State Trooper laid to rest

Troy, Illinois ( KSDK ) -- Saturday was an emotional day for an Illinois community that had to say goodbye to one of their own who worked to protect them.

State Trooper Kyle Deatherage was killed in the line of the duty on November 26.

People from near and far filled the gym at Triad High School to say goodbye to Illinois State Trooper Kyle Deatherage.

Many knew him, but many did not.

Deatherage was a motorcycle officer. He had been with Illinois State Police since 2009. He was conducting a traffic stop Monday on I-55 just north of Litchfield, when he was hit and killed by a semi truck. Dave Aumend was part of a contingent of riders from several different clubs.

"This is to support the gentleman who lost his life and it's also to take care to let people know that we remember. This is not a forgotten incident," Aumend says.

The funeral lasted just under two hours.

"I've never seen anything like it. It was very touching-the flags, the turnout from the public..." says long-time friend St. Jacob Fire Chief Scott Prange.

People lined the streets on the way to the cemetery, waving flags.

Chief Prange says it couldn't have been for a better person.

"You want to say he was a good guy, but that doesn't do him justice."

Hundreds from law enforcement across the region and even as far away as Louisiana came to the funeral and drove to the burial site to pay their respects to this man whose death was a tragic reminder that this could happen to any one of them at any time.

"It touched all of us, I think," Prange says. "He was out there working on the interstate. We work accidents on the highways every day, ourselves as the fire department, police, ambulance, we're all out there. It could have been any of us."

Deatherage is survived by his wife, Sarah, and two children- four year-old Kaylee and 10 month old Camden.

The Kyle Deatherage Memorial Fund has been set up to help with education for his two children. Anyone who would like to donate should contact Scott Credit Union in Highland, Illinois at 618-345-1000.
