Earlier today, Sgt. Ryan Russell of the Metropolitab Toronto Police Service was laid to rest.
14,000 brothers in blue from all over North America escorted him to his final rest after his young life was ended in the line of duty attempting to stop a stolen snow plow that was running amok.
He is survived by a wife and a 2 year old son.
Sgt. Russell’s service to his city did not end with his death. He carried a signed organ donor card, and his eyes are now aiding a young child to see the city he died to protect.
I never knew Ryan, as my time on Toronto’s force was before he was born, but I had the pleasure of knowing many other dedicated members like him.
He will be missed.
