(CNN) - Friends and family are mourning the loss of a beloved priest beaten to death inside his church rectory Wednesday, remembering him as a man who practiced what he preached.
"He lived his values," said Humboldt State University professor Stephen Cunha, both a friend and a colleague of Reverend Eric Freed.
"He was very concerned about social injustice, and resolving great social inequalities, which we see here in our small community," said Cunha.
From the pulpit and the classroom, Freed tried to persuade well-off members of the community to be open to those who were less fortunate, said Cunha.
His empathy may have unfortunately contributed to his murder.
