Reflections for Policeman John James Knox

 

A Hero now in Heaven, always remembered and never forgotten.

PPD P/O Knox, God bless you for your brave and dedicated service, never to be forgotten!

My father a 19 year veteran Sergeant of the Philadelphia police dept, died of a massive heart attack on this day. in the year 1979. At the time he was out on a 32 as he had his neck broken in the line of duty when he was struck with a mahogany bar stool during a bar fight disturbance.

That day was a horribly sad and devastating day for me and my family, but as I look upon these reflections I see two of my fathers brothers in PPD blue were waiting for him at the gates of heaven!
