A procession was held Sunday morning for a former Rocky Hill Volunteer Ambulance Association chief who died while performing duties.

The association said Joseph Grayeb suffered a medical emergency while working at a Rocky Hill High School football game on Friday. He was transported to a nearby hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Connecticut State Police said Grayeb served as a police officer with the Ellington Police Department for 22 years. He was also an officer for state Department of Motor Vehicles for over 20 years.

Grayeb was brought home from the hospital Sunday morning. Funeral arrangements are still being made at this time.

State police said Grayeb "showed compassion and helped others when they needed it the most."

"His dedication to the service and protection of his community was apparent through his lifetime," state police said in a statement.

He was 54 years old.
