Policeman Andrew Carlson died after contracting pneumonia as the result of prolonged exposure to a blizzard.

He had reported to duty during the blizzard and set out on his beat despite being advised by supervisors to stay at the station. His beat area had recently seen several burglaries and arsons and Patrolman Carlson was determined to arrest the offenders. He returned home after his shift and immediately collapsed. His condition continued to deteriorate and he contracted pneumonia, which caused his death.

Policeman Carlson was survived by his wife.

Officer Carlson,

You put your community before yourself and paid a high price. It is a shame more people today don't have that in them. Thank you for your commitment and courage. You are remembered.
