Thousands of firefighters from throughout New England and around the country have paid their final respects and mourned the loss of a brother firefighter.

Christopher Roy died from injuries sustained while fighting a five alarm fire on Lowell Street in Worcester last Sunday. 

"Christopher Roy is at peace after a Sunday of deception and treachery," said Father Walter Reilly, one of the celebrants of the mass.

Governor Baker told reporters before services that this has been a horrible time for Roy's  entire family and those in his extended family in the fire service.

A fund has been established in Firefighter Roy's memory.  Contributions in memory of Chris may be made to:
