ONEIDA COUNTY, N.Y. -- It's been seven years since a high speed chase in Oneida County turned deadly when a suspect in a million dollar jewelry heist shot and killed New Hartford Police Officer Joseph Corr.

On the anniversary of his death, family, friends and co-workers held a celebration of life service in honor of their fallen hero. They gathered at the Byrne Dairy in Kirkland, where Officer Corr was shot.

After the memorial mass, the group held a candle light vigil.

"It's a day you'll remember forever. Where you were, even each year, where you were, what you were doing, but this is a great way for us to help everybody remember him, not just us," said Sherri Philipkoski, Corr’s sister.

Family members say they miss Corr's pranks and laughter the most.
