They identified the driver as Deborah Rogers of Richfield Springs. She faces DWI and vehicular manslaughter charges.

Monday, family and friends remembered Officer Parks and his contributions to Ilion.

"For me to have been away from the area for about six years now, to discover that he had done so much in the community here, I didn't even know and I'm so very proud of him,” said his mother, Merry Ann Wright.

Parks' funeral takes place Wednesday.

Village leaders say they plan to find a fitting way to honor him.
