PLAISTOW (AP) — Several hundred people have attended the funeral for the longtime police chief of Plaistow, New Hampshire.

Stephen Savage died Friday after a three-year battle with kidney cancer. He was 68.

The funeral was held at Rockingham Church in Plaistow, followed by burial with Air Force honors in Maplewood Cemetery.

The Eagle Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1ntgtom) Deputy Chief Kathleen Jones remembered Savage for his sense of humor and called him a great mentor and friend.

Savage served 28 years as Plaistow’s chief and was police chief of Haverhill for 10 years.

In the U.S. Senate on Monday, Sen. Kelly Ayotte honored Savage, saying she got to know him when she served as attorney general. She said he was kind, compassionate and devoted to serving others.
