Frank Peak

Marshal Peak was shot and killed by unknown assailants while on patrol at night. It is thought that the murder was a result of a run-in between Marshal Peak and individuals he had encountered earlier in the night while in performance of his duties. Marshal Peak's body was found on the bridge over English Ditch on South Lincoln Avenue with two gunshot wounds. The suspects were never identified.

I am the Great Granddaughter of Marshal Frank Peak. I grew up with his daughter, Edna (Peak) Barager as my best-loved Grandma. She was five when she lost her dad. I have heard many stories about the impact of that day. I feel particularly blessed to have spent most mornings before school visiting my Great Grandma Nellie Peak (Frank’s wife) and her sister who she lived with, Rachel Howard (we called her Auntie) and brother-in-law, Albert Howard (Uncle). I was very close to them growing up and attribute my spirit of perseverance, determination, and love for God to be directly related. I saw my Great Grandfather’s name in 1996 on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial when I visited WA DC in 1996. He left an impact that day and has not been forgotten. I imagine the day I will meet him for the first time in heaven and hope he can be proud of his legacy.
