–Area residents and Law Enforcement officers from across the state filled up the Algona High School Gymnasium Wednesday, to honor the life and service of Algona Police Officer Kevin Cram, who was killed in the line of duty on September 13th.
Algona Police Chief Bo Miller eulogized his fallen officer, and says Cram was a guy that was willing to put in the hard work to get things done.
Miller says as Chief, he knew he could always count on Cram to help out whenever and wherever he was needed.
Miller took a moment to encourage the Law Enforcement Officers in attendance to use this time to come together as one.
Miller also took time to thank Cram’s family.
While plenty of tears were shed during Wednesday’s service, Miller brought out laughter as well, discussing Officer Cram’s fondness for eating animals that most people won’t touch. Miller recalled a time he jokingly sent Cram a picture of a dead raccoon on the side of the road.
Miller says this penchant for eating strange things did prove helpful for Cram around the office, however.
Following the service, family members and law enforcement officials escorted Officer Cram’s body from Algona to the Corwith Cemetery.
