    The Connecticut State Police Union has established a memorial fund for Trooper First Class Kevin Miller, who was killed in a crash on I-84 while on duty last week.

    Miller served with the Connecticut State Police for 19 years and was assigned to Troop C in Tolland. He had previously served for Troop K in Colchester and Troop E in Montville. He was killed in a collision with a tractor-trailer on I-84 in Tolland last Thursday.

    On Tuesday, Connecticut State Police Union President Andrew Matthews spoke to the media about Miller’s death.

    “The loss of trooper miller is an immeasurable loss to our agency,” Matthews said.

    The union has established a memorial fund to support Miller’s family. Miller is survived by his mother, Linda, a 13-year-old son, a 10-year-ld daughter, and their mother, Jennifer. The funds will go directly to the children, and the union will help the family establish the estate and take care of their needs for the future.

    “It doesn’t matter if you knew our brother Kevin or not on the job, because sometimes you don’t meet each other because there is so many of us but it affects every trooper because it could be any one of them at any time,” Matthews said.

    Anyone wishing to donate can send checks payable to “The Connecticut State Police Union, Inc.” Checks should be mailed to Kevin Miller Memorial Fund, Connecticut State Police Union, 500 Main Street, East Hartford, Connecticut 06118-1034. Please do not send cash and please include “Kevin Miller Memorial Fund” in the check memo.

    Calling hours for Miller will be held Thursday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and again from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Pratt and Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field, 615 Silver Lane in East Hartford.

    A Mass of Christian burial funeral service will be held Friday at 11 a.m. at the same location.
