Although it has been 40 yrs, doesn't seem possible, I somewhat remember the incident and remember the picture in our local paper. I have always had the utmost respect for the OSHP. I just wanted to give my respects to our local Trooper and that his name will never be forgotten here in Findlay. Thank you for your service and to our surrounding communities. GOD needed you more in Heaven for His work.
