Hopkins died Saturday. Authorities said the death was sudden and there was no evidence of foul play, according to WCVB-TV.
"Officer Hopkins was a dedicated veteran of the Easton PD for more than thirteen years," Police Chief Allen Krajcik said in a statement. "More importantly, Charlie was a devoted husband and father of three children. Charlie will be sadly missed by everyone."
Colleagues said Hopkins pulled a man from a burning car in 2012, saving his life, WCVB reported.
A wake will be held Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Nardolillo Funeral Home in Cranston, Rhode Island. The funeral will be Thursday at 10 a.m. at the Cranston Christian Fellowship.
