MESA, AZ (CBS5) -
Services for a Valley police officer killed by a wrong-way driver have been announced, the Mesa Police Department said.
Officer Brandon Mendoza, 32, was hit and killed on a southeast Valley freeway on Monday morning by 42-year-old Raul Silva Corona of Phoenix. Mendoza was on his way home from his shift when the two vehicles collided head-on.
Visitation will be held on Thursday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at All Saints Catholic Church at 1534 N. Recker Road in Mesa.
A Mass will be celebrated at the church at 10 a.m. on Friday.
Immediately following the service, a procession is planned to the Queen of Heaven Cemetery at 1500 E. Baseline Road in Mesa.
The community remembers Mendoza as a man who had many passions. On Thanksgiving, Mendoza would bring turkeys, cook and serve the community meals.
Several months ago he rescued a pit bull he'd found tied to a tree.
A memorial has been set up at Guerrero Rotary Park, where people have placed candles and flowers in memory of Mendoza.
