November 12, 2020 -- Leaders of the Historic Fairmont Neighborhood, the Fraternal Order of Police Indiana Wayne Lodge 14, members of Fort Wayne Police Officer David Tinsley’s family and Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry recently dedicated a memorial to Fort Wayne Police Officer David Tinsley. Tinsley died in the line of duty in 2018 and his family members are residents of the Historic Fairmont Neighborhood.

DSC 3133The memorial is part of a neighborhood improvement project undertaken this year and partially funded by a City of Fort Wayne 2020 Neighborhood Improvement Grant. Berry’s Welding and the Fraternal Order of Police Indiana Wayne Lodge 14 Foundation Leaving a Living Legacy, LLC provided the funding for the memorial, a $3,500 value. Thrivent Financial contributed $250 toward landscaping and the City of Fort Wayne grant paid for the two benches and a bike rack. Historic Fairmont Neighborhood volunteers purchased over $350 of supplies and did all the installation except the welded memorial.
