You were never a footnote in our family's story. You were the product of all that came before you did, and now you are a teacher and awesome role model for all who follow. I can honestly say that I am proud to be one of your descendants. You are a hero to me.

You will never be forgotten!

It was 83 years ago today you were shot and killed. It’s a shame that that Memorial Page doesn’t have more details, but in some respects, does it really matter? What truly matters is that, you were taken from this life for no good reason, leaving behind friends, family and co-workers who missed you.

Thank you for your service to the Commonwealth. May God Bless you and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
