ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Lora’s Donuts and Bakery Shop honored fallen Colorado State Patrol trooper Cody Donahue on Saturday.

Hundreds showed up to the Englewood bakery where Donahue was a regular to show their support. The business donated 100 percent of its profits to his two young daughters.

Firefighters from South Metro Fire Rescue even came to donate money for the family.

The bakery, located at 11804 E. Oswego St., donated the profits between 5 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday.

Donahue was hit and killed by a commercial truck driver in November on Interstate 25 just south of Castle Rock.

The driver, 41-year-old Noe Gamez-Ruiz, has been charged with  careless driving resulting in death and failure to yield the right-of-way to an emergency vehicle.

Donahue was an 11-year-veteran of the Colorado State Patrol.
