My father is 80 this year. He was a FBI agent in Savannah from 1967-1968. At lunch today he told me a story about how he helped a detective's wife collect a federal pension upon his friend being killed in the line of duty. My dad and this detective were of the same age roughly. My dad remembered that they both were married and had kids. My dad was also a lawyer and this federal pension benefit to local law enforcement killed during a federal crime became law in 1968. Dad made sure this detective's family got it. Apparently the car was stolen from NY and being sold in GA.
My dad was 32 years old at the time. My dad had fond memories of working with the detective. I'd like to know if this detective is the family my father helped. The circumstances of this detective's death are the same.

Detective Mobley, I have never met you but I have met your family. They were wonderful and although I haven't seen Patricia, Dana, David, or your wife, rest assured Mr. Boggs took great care of them. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice!

Uncle Wade,

Tuesday, October 15, 2013 you will be remembered and honored in Savannah, at the same location that your life was taken.
Police recruits to honor fallen officer in run.
Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department Recruit Class 269 and Class 270 will hold a “Run to Remember” for fallen Savannah Police Officer Frank Mobley on Tuesday, October 15 at 9 a.m.

Officer Mobley was shot and killed by the suspect he was arresting on July 20, 1968 at 421 Jefferson Street.
The “Run to Remember” will begin at the north end of Forsyth Park at Bull and Gaston streets and will end at Jefferson and Taylor streets. A brief ceremony honoring Officer Mobley will take place at 421 Jefferson Street in the Car Spa parking lot.

Mobley’s family will be attending this ceremony.

I wish I could be there. I will always remember you for the kind and wonderful uncle, father, husband, brother and son you were. I still remember you in uniform. I remember when you used to work with your K-9 as we kids watched in awe. I remember so many special family reunions.
I still remember the day we got the call and all that followed...

It makes me so proud that your name, your service, your life and all you stood for is still remembered with such honor and respect. Never to be forgotten.
