Patrolman Petynko,
On today, the 91st anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Newport Township.

Ptl. Petynko. your potential was never truly realized after a cowardly rat murdered you. That thing created a hole in your family that could never be filled. I have no doubt they passed on the love and respect you earned to all who came after you.

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