Much respect to my Grt Grt Uncle Thomas Colquitt, who left his birth country as a young man, to join and serve with the Lincoln Park District PD. Tragically to lose his life from being hit by a car, leaving behind a wife and 7 children. And a great loss to his family back home.

Thank you for your service you gave in protecting others and keeping yuor community safer.
I love that you, 102years on, and all other fallen officers are memorialised and remembered.
