HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Longtime Henrico Police Officer Brian Wilson was laid to rest Saturday.

The 50-year-old Henrico County Police captain battled an illness over the past year, according to a post from the department.

The veteran officer joined the force in Henrico in 1995 and served "proudly and honorably," according to his obituary.

Wilson was remembered as a "super dad" to his two kids as well as being a "huge" animal lover with a "great sense of humor."

"He would always do what he could to help anyone. He was our protector," a tribute to Wilson reads. "Brian has left this world a better place than he found it."

Instead of flowers, his family asked donations be made in his memory to the St. Baldrick's Foundation for Childhood Cancer, which he supported.
