You were badge #3 and I’ve been a patrolman with the Nutley Police Dept., just over the bridge from Lyndhurst! My badge # is 330
Your son Frank was able to get a street in Lyndhurst named after you and there are memorials for you in the park next to the police department as well as at the Bergen county police academy.
