In Loving Memory of
Tucson Police Department Officer
A man of God, an integral part of our church family, and a selfless hero in the Tucson community, Erik went home to be with the Lord on Monday, June 2nd at 12:53pm. He sustained a bullet wound to the head while chasing a gunman on Sunday morning, and was kept on life support at University Medical Center as his family and friends gathered together. As we rejoice at Erik's being united with the Lord in heaven, we also mourn his loss to us on earth. Please keep the Hite family in continual prayer during this painful time.
Tucson Police Department Officer Erik Hite, 43, was buried Tuesday June 10, 2008. He died Monday June 2, 2008, a day after being shot in the head during a crosstown chase and shooting spree.

He restores my soul.
Even though I walk
You prepare a table before me
Surely goodness and love will
