FLORA, Ind. - Hundreds of police officers filled much of a high school gymnasium for the funeral of a central Indiana sheriff's deputy who died when his patrol car rolled over on his way to a crash scene.
Those officers walked past the flag-draped coffin of Tipton County Deputy Jacob Calvin as his funeral began Monday at Carroll High School in Flora.
Calvin, 31, was a 2001 graduate of Carroll High School and was a Tipton County deputy for 2-1/2 years.
Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter told mourners that Calvin exemplified the spirit of service and commitment.
Mourners described Calvin as always smiling, always caring about those around him.
Friends and family members said they prefer everyone celebrate Calvin's life and remember that he lived life by doing what he loved.
Police said Calvin lost control of his patrol car June 28 on a rural road in Tipton County and wasn't wearing a seatbelt as he was ejected from the car when it rolled several times.
