A fallen Tampa Bay area police officer will be remembered Monday during a service for Tarpon Springs Officer Charles Kondek.

Kondek, 45, was fatally shot Dec. 20, 2014 after he responded to a noise complaint outside an apartment building. He was a father of six, a 17-year member of the Tarpon Springs police force and a former New York City policeman.

Marco Parilla Jr.,  a convicted felon, was arrested in the shooting and charged with first-degree murder.

Today, there will be a wreath presentation and a candlelight vigil during a memorial service at police headquarters at 444 S. Huey Avenue.

The ceremony will begin at 5:30 p.m.
