ooh, my little pretty one, pretty one
when you gonna give me some time, Pomona?
I was just about to make a posting on this when I saw that Pride in Garfield Park beat me to it.Joe will be sorely missed. I got to know the Chief during a number of community meetings and then started noticing that I was running into him all over the place. Seeing him when I was at a restaurant, or just out and about. He seemed to be everywhere. While I appreciate our current chief Keetle, and find him to be a very approachable person, I don't see him out and about like I did with Joe.The DB story talks about his love of the children of the community. For one of our early programs at the Pomona Fox, we decided to offer a block of 10 tickets to the Boys and Girls Club. I made the offer at one of their board meetings and Joe immediately, matched our offer, purchasing an additional 10 tickets, not only donating to the kids, but helping the fledgeling Friends of the Pomona Fox as well. A small but much appreciated gesture.Yes Joe, you will certainly be missed.
There is a fan page started for Joe V Romero Chief of Police (Retired) on Facebook; the family would love to hear all the great memories that people have been telling.....
According to the Todd Memorial ad in the DB, a viewing will be held on March 1 and the funeral will be held on March 2 at First Baptist Church.Unfortunately, We'll be out of town so can't attend, but our hearts will certainly be there.
