The Kent Island Bay Times - - Obituary -

QUEEN­STOWN — On Wed­nes­day morn­ing, Dec. 19, Lt. Earl John­ston and 1st Sgt. Mor­ris “Sonny” Jones of the Queen Anne’s County Sher­iff’s Of­fice placed wreaths on the Queen Anne’s County Fallen Heroes Me­mo­rial.

Among those hon­ored are Sher­iff’s Dfc. Ja­son Sch­wenz and Cen­tre­ville Po­lice Of­fi­cer Michael Nick­er­son. Both were trag­i­cally gunned down in Cen­tre­ville af­ter re­spond­ing to a noise com­plaint on Fe­bru­ary 13, 2001.

In 2003, the Fra­ter­nal Or­der of Po­lice, Lodge 108, in con­junc­tion with the Queen Anne’s County govern­ment ded­i­cated the Fallen Heroes Me­mo­rial Park, on Route 18, in Queen­stown. The me­mo­rial was built to honor po­lice and fire­fight­ers who died in the line of duty.

“We thank and re­mem­ber ev­ery fallen hero that has made the ul­ti­mate sac­ri­fice for all of us. These fallen heroes will never be for­got­ten for their ser­vice,” said Sher­iff Gary Hof­mann.
