Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo attends a service at Police Memorial Park in Las Vegas, Thursday, Oct. 5, 2017, in memory of Charleston Hartfield, an off-duty Las Vegas police officer who was killed in the mass shooting on the Strip.

In this June 6, 2015 photo, U.S. Army National Guard Sgt. 1st Class Charleston Hartfield of the 100th Quartermaster Company poses for a photo at Rainbow Falls near Hilo, Hawaii.

Uniformed officers took turns at the microphone in Police Memorial Park to share stories to remember Hartfield.

Hartfield was among the first memorials for the dead, whose identities have now all been released by authorities.

The 66-year-old retired carpenter is known for installing the markers at other mass killings, including the Columbine and Sandy Hook school shootings and Orlando nightclub massacre.

Philadelphia Eagles defense hangs on - again
The offense is bailing out the defense, the defense is bailing out the offense, and special teams sometimes bails out everybody. It's exactly the impact play the Chargers were banking on when they gave Ingram a four-year deal potentially worth $66 million.

Hartfield joined the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in 2002 after serving as part of the 82nd Airborne Division, KVVU reported. Mrs. Veronica Hartfield and her two sons, a boy and a girl, sat in the front row. "He ultimately gave his life protecting others". "I don't know a better man than Charles".

Another officer said, "faith and family were the most important to Charlie".

When Troy Rhett of Las Vegas heard about the attack unfolding on Sunday night at the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival, he texted his friend Charles Hartfield.

An officer closed the vigil with the following Calvin Coolidge quote chosen by Officer Hartfield to honor fallen officers, "No person was ever honored for what he received". Hartfield had been shot and killed.

One of his fellow officers, Jake Grunwald, has set up a GoFundMe page for Hartfield's family.
