This man was my great grandfather. When he passed he left a family of six children, including my Grandfather. He must have been a great man, his son, (my Grandfather) did everything for his family.

God bless him, and all the officers that protect and serve.

PS - Thank you Uncle Harvey for seeing that Frank's sacrifice is being recognized.
