In Memory of Officer Glen P. Fisher

Glen P. Fisher

Date of Death: March 10, 1971

He worked for my husband at the time and during a raid he was shot and killed. He was a very young officer at the time of his death. I often think that could have been my husband, but it just wasn't his time. I pray for all officers that they remain safe.
