It was my honor to research newspapers, books and magazines and finally find your ID Card Photo in a 1971 magazine and make sure your photo was put on this site. I wanted to put a face to your heroism in the Line of Duty. I did the research because you are a brother officer and no matter how many years past, you will always be remembered. Rest Easy Hero.
