Doerun - - A church is filled Sunday with the prayers and support of people mourning the loss of an Albany Search and Rescue Team deputy commander murdered last week.

The funeral service for 43 year old Jack Camp was held Sunday at Liberty Hill Baptist Church. Law enforcement officers, EMS workers, and members of the Search and Rescue team joined family and friends as they paid their final respects to Camp.

He was gunned down early Wednesday morning at Regency Club apartments in east Albany where he was a courtesy officer. He called 911 to report a suspicious person at the complex.

People who worked with Camp say there's a good reason the church was full.  

"I would say because of the type of man Jack was. He was number one a family man, a father, he took care of his kids regardless, that was number one. After that he took care of friends. He was nice to everyone, he respected everyone. He was so loved that you could just feel it everywhere at the services today," says Chuck Mitchell of the rescue team.

Camp leaves behind a fiance and nine children. Albany police are investigating the shooting death.
