Officer John Naccarato had two sons-John & Tim who were too young to know him. Their Uncle David has told them for years what a great guy and older brother he was and how devastated the family was. Our father should know that thorough our hard work and strong support from family and friends, we both got college degrees, had productive careers,and have great wives and children.
We will always regret not knowing our father.
