FENTON, MI (WNEM) -

Bagpipes and a memorial were a peaceful comfort on a heart-wrenching day for the thousands who joined to say goodbye to a guardian on earth, Michigan State Police Trooper Chad Wolf.

"I do ministry at the jail and even at the jail the prisoners there were very, very upset to hear about this loss," said Anne Bundy.

And so were 3,500 people. Fellow officers, friends, family, lawmakers and people who have never heard his name before packed in and around Fenton High School's gymnasium to share in their grief.

Wolf joined the Michigan State Police in 2008. The 38-year-old was a proud husband and father of four.

Chad wolf's family released a statement which said they are very thankful to all of those who have reached out to them through social media and donations. They said that has helped make the burden a little lighter to bear.

Wolf was laid to rest at the Fairview Cemetery in Linden.
