Semper Fi Motorman. I also worked South LA as you did. You were spoken about in 1969 When I reported Into SLA and I still think about the stories I was told about you. Several officers knew you well and they did not and I’m certain have not forgotten you. Rest In Peace And God bless you and your family.

State Traffic Officer 7185 Mike Becze
