He gave his life serving and protecting. He answered the call, placing his duty above all and made the ultimate sacrifice. He suffered in death and left us a life to live and honor him. His family lost a great husband and father. I am so grateful for his sacrifice and legacy. I will always cherish his memory and look forward to being united with him. It is an honor to know that John B. Gendron is my paternal great grandfather. May God bless his memory and his sacrifice, may we honor his legacy and his service and forever remember him. Thank you great-grandfather. Your great-grandson, love Paul
