Wow! What a shame to leave a wife and six children behind. Rest in peace Officer Fitch. Your honor and bravery will be duly noted. One reflection in over one-hundred years. I know the brave men and women wearing the checkerboard hats can do better. This brave soul was one of your own.

Hi, I am writing on behalf of Nancy Ball, his granddaughter.

She had known he had died while riding a motorcycle in performance of his duties, but never received a gold star.

Her father, Austin Levi Fitch, was one of the 6 children Officer Fitch left behind.

He grew up to be a metallurgist and had 3 daughters. Due to his occupation, he was deemed important to the war effort and was not drafted in World War II.

Thank you for posting this memoriam page.
