My Great Grandfather.

His two sons also would become Brockton Police Officers.

My Great Grandfather started out working in the Brockton shoe factories. Brockton was known as "Shoe City" & most men, women & even children were employed in the booming shoe industry.

Grandpa took much pride in the Clark Family home at 18 Wellington Place. He enjoyed planting flowers, gardening & kept his yard in immaculate condition always.
