This is the only picture I have of my Great Grandfather. I was told he was killed in an accident but not much else was said. His death was the moment my gandmother had to grow up and take care of her brother and sister. I am sad I was never was able to met him but proud that I carry his genes to serve the public. I did met his son and grandson who both were police officers and I think within the same city. Uncle Fred gave me a badge when I was six (1955)and I still have it. Thanks to all who post in his honor.
