New York State trooper Nicholas Clark's life was celebrated today at Alfred State college. Family, friends and first responders came to say their final words to the fallen hero. 

“A wonderful human-being who touched so many lives in the short time he was with us,” Reverend Donald Maynard said. 

Clark was killed Monday, July 2nd by a suicidal school principle.

“His life was taken because he did what we asked him to do,” said Beach. “He went into harm’s way to protect the innocent, and despite the great risk that he faced he performed his duty to help others. That is a true hero," New York State Police Superintendent George Beach II said. 

He was only 29.
