Officer Fred Kowolowski is my uncle. Fred pulled a motorist over on Christmas Day eve in 1938, issued a warning and was hit by a drunk driver. His brother Ed Kowolowski retired from the CHP in the 1970's and was killed falling a tree in 1980 in Alturas, CA. Louie Kowolowski and Ella 'Schneller' Kowolowski both have passed from natural causes.

I never met Fred, but the stories I was told tells me that he was a great man and a Outstanding Officer and a credit to the California Highway Patrol.
