Donald R. Fredenburg, Jr.

Trooper Donald Fredenburg suffered a fatal heart attack while participating in a morning training run at the New York State Police Academy.

He and other newly sworn in troopers had just begun their run around the SUNY Albany campus when he suddenly collapsed. Academy staff immediately provided medical attention, including the use of an AED, which restarted his heart. He was transported to Albany Medical Center where he passed away at approximately 7:30 am.

Trooper Fredenburg was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had been sworn in as a New York State trooper only two weeks prior. He is survived by his wife, parents, and brother.

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.
