R.I.P. I never had a opportunity to meet my grandfather. I do remember stories as told my the locals when I was a child, he was highly respected by all that knew him, as a grown man now I can't understand people that are so critical of people that put there life on the line every day to protect total strangers. I am very proud to say thanks to my grandfather and father who were both Police officers.
may you both rest in peace
