FENTON, MI (WNEM) -

Visitation continued Monday for Michigan State Police trooper Chad Wolf. Wolf died Friday after being struck by a vehicle on Interstate 75 in Oakland County.

Visitation was also held Sunday at Sharp Funeral Homes in Fenton. 

Fighting back tears, Debbie Hoolihan explained how she felt when she heard the horrific news about her church family member:

"He loved his lord," said Hoolihan. "He loved God with all his heart. He was willing to share that love with everyone he met."

At Sunday's visitation, mourner after mourner showed up to express their grief. 

Current and former police also attended to pay their respects. 

State Police spokesperson Lt. Michael Shaw said Wolf's wife and four kids are devastated, but are thankful for the support. 

"She wanted to pass along through us that she's grateful for the support she's gotten," said Shaw.

As for Hoolihan, she's looking to God now for support through this troubling time. 

"His family now is just depending on their faith," said Hoolihan. "They're holding tight to the promise that someday they will be reunited with him in heaven."

Visitation runs from 2-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. on Monday.

Wolf’s funeral will be held Tuesday at 1 p.m. at Fenton High School at 3200 W. Shiawassee. Immediately following the funeral service there will be a procession to Fairview Cemetery in Linden where a gravesite ceremony will be held.
