Reflections for Sergeant John Taylor Coax

We embark on the 100 year anniversary . This man my great grandfather, His son John T Coax Sr. aka ( Jack) my grandfather (26Sept 1922-30 April 1984) and my Father John Taylor Coax Jr. ( 5 Sept 1945-12June 1985) named after him. A man we never met. His son never grew to know him because of the malicious acts that occurred on this day. The heroic acts of John T Coax, and John A Pieper will not be forgotten. It is men like this who will continue to change the world. Thank you for your services.

Sgt. Coax,
On today, the 100th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the state of Pennsylvania. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement than that of a Corrections Officer.
