Recall my mom, Norma, telling me his motorcycle was struck from behind, car/driver unknown till this day. Have newspaper clip, know his badge #, his age seems off, thought younger, 32. His great grandson, Michael Candelario, is PRPD agente in San Juan, his granddaughter, Wanda Maldonado, is sheriff in NC .... We remember & The blue tradition continues ...
