Patrolman Tufts, its now been 64 years since your passing and today, we paid tribute to a Massachusetts State Trooper who was killed in the line of duty on the 3rd. The Lynn PD was well represented and no doubt, your sacrifice entered their minds as they stood with hundreds of us. You will never be forgotten.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
