CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - A reserve police officer from Waynesboro who was found dead Feb. 6 is being remembered at a memorial in Charlottesville.

Speakers on Monday remembered Kevin Quick as a dedicated, unflappable veteran of Waynesboro's Reserve Police Force and a "kind and gentle" man with a ready smile.

The memorial at John Paul Jones Arena was attended by dozens of police officers, his chief and former law enforcement colleagues and Attorney General Mark Herring and Brian Moran, the secretary of the state's Department of Public Safety. He was also representing Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

Six people have been charged in connection with Quick's disappearance Feb. 1, but no one has been charged in his death.

State police have not said how Quick died. They say some of the six will face additional charges.
