I was researching and discovered that you had served the citizens of Kensington, CA on their PD prior to moving to OPD in 1949. My dad went to work in Kensington a few years later, in fact the same year you gave your life for the community. Rest easy and may you always be remembered for the good you did here during your years one this earth.
