Sgt. Frederick Clemens and Registered Nurse Dawn Clemens are the organizers of Ride to Remember, which honors three deceased Folsom State Prison officers.
The ride was held Sept. 13, starting at the prison. Proceeds go to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the ALS Association and Caring Bridges in honor of the lives of Lt. Anthony Gentile, Sgt. Roger Milbourn and Correctional Officer Hugh Reed.
“They are gone, but never forgotten,” Sgt. Clemens said. “They were men among men, and left a powerful legacy.”
Lt. Gentile was killed in 2013 when he stopped to help victims of a an accident on the freeway. Read the original story at http://www.insidecdcr.ca.gov/2013/10/cdcr-officer-killed-while-helping-at-traffic-accident/
