Funeral for APD officer killed in crash

Posted: Updated:

Family, friends and several dozen Atlanta police officers said goodbye Saturday to Officer Ryan Baird.

The 38-year-old husband and father worked out of the Atlanta Police Department's Hartsfield Jackson Airport Division.

Mourners remembered him as a man drawn to service and said he dreamed of being a police officer since he was a little boy.

While off-duty on Monday, he lost control of his car and crashed on Mann Road in Douglas County. He died from the injuries sustained in the crash.

Officer Baird was also remembered as an active member in his church. He leaves behind three children; his eldest is in the U.S. Navy.
