ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A memorial service takes place on Saturday to celebrate the life of a Missouri state trooper who was killed on the job Dec. 25.

Highway Patrol Cpl. Dennis Englehard was struck and killed while responding to an accident on a snow-covered highway near St. Louis.

The Eucharist service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at Christ Church Cathedral in St. Louis, followed by a reception for family and friends.

The church has set up a memorial fund in Engelhard's honor to benefit his partner, Kelly Glossip, and their son. Engelhard and Glossip were members of the church community.
