You would have been 79 years old on August 27th this year. I miss you more and more every day. The great state of California lost a fine officer in 1975. I visit the cemetery in Chatsworth often, where you lie in rest among other police officers; L.A.P.D. Love you Fred. Your brother - in - law and beat partner, Tim.
