Rest in Peace Police Officer Arthur Ford. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice Protecting the steel roadways of America. The job has not changed much over the years just the technology. We still have to check those yards for burglars and thieves but now the transients are not just hobos but enemy combatants from foreign enemies.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers.

God has a special place in Heaven for whomever it is that is finding all you railroad bulls who were taken from this life before your time. You should be honored, and now, thanks to the person/people who have done the research and found your names, you are.

Officer Ford, being a Railroad cop was and is one of the most important jobs in America's transportation industry. You and your brothers and sisters help and have helped protect one of this nations most vital assets, our railroads. It is so sad that the chief danger you faced of the non-criminal type, were the very trains you protected.

God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.
