This man is my great-grandfather. My grandfather, Fred, was one of his sons. Fred had to go live with an uncle because his mom could not take care of all eight children on her own. Very sad.

It may have been 119 years since your ultimate sacrifice but please know it will not be forgotten by the CPD. You are an example of the highest grade police officer.

I am the great-granddaughter of John Huebner. My grandfather, Fred Huebner, was John's 6th child. After being shot, John lingered for days at home while his wife Christine tended to their 8 children. After the death of his father, Fred was sent to an orphanage because John's wife Christine could not care for all the children by herself. I am proud to be related to such a brave officer.
