Officer Gary Skerski was memorialized on May 8th. The video below shows a bit of that ceremony. We live in a time when the word hero is over used. He was a hero in the truest sense of the word. He was the Community Services Officer for the 15th District when he was killed 10 years ago but he was working overtime that night when he was called to investigate the report of a robbery at Pat’s Cafe.
Natalie Pompilio and Robert Moran of the Inquirer gave a great account of his time which you can read at this link.
