On September 14th, 1982, a heroic legacy was set in motion and remains alive to this very day. Sergeant Ed Holcomb Jr of the Conroe Police Department put his life on the line for citizens everywhere during a domestic dispute call that unfortunately took the life of this admired patriot. His service and fidelity stretched 5 long years before one selfless act ultimately sealed its remembered place in history. Though saddened by their loss, Holcomb’s wife and son gathered with all those who knew him to honorably commemorate every bit of courage embodied through his sacrifice; grateful only that he is being remembered across America as proudly stated today – “A hero NEVER dies”. It too was no surprise that I personally felt honored when they asked me to capture such bravery into a full-figure bronze statue form. To show Ed saluting firmly toward others and the stars above are a true reminder forever kept safe. Like Ed, our most unforgettable heroes are never forgotten!
