George Scheu was a great Patrolman and well liked. He organized a lot of Police charity events , belonged to several organizations and he truly loved being a cop.
He LOVED being a husband, and father of three wonderful children. All have grown and he would be very proud of them today.
George was a lot more than Just a Brother-In-Law to me. Taught me how to drive, how to use a gun, and mostly How to be a good Person.
