Mourners gather for Illinois trooper's funeral

(Continued)

The Rev. Scott Bradley, who officiated at James Sauter's wedding and served as his youth minister, said Sauter both inspired him as a pastor and caused him to lose his hair and go gray. He said that after a prior accident that occurred while Sauter was on duty, Sauter said he was worried he would die without having done enough for other people.

"I am a living testimony that James Sauter's life meant something," Bradley said. "That he lived with purpose and made a difference in the lives of others."
