Calling hours for Trooper First Class Kevin Miller, who was killed in a crash on I-84 while on duty last week, will be Thursday at Rentschler Field, with a funeral service Friday.
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.
During the afternoon rush hour, an extraordinary procession carried Miller's body from Tolland to the chief medical examiner’s office in Farmington. The Hartford Fire Department put up a flag over the I-84 overpass in Hartford in honor of Miller, while other state police troopers saluted him.
Calling hours 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.
