26 Dec 1915
Sergeant Paul Meeks Died suddenly from a Apoplexy as he was leaving his house to head into work for his shift. The 37 year old Sergeant lived in the 1900 Blk. of Mosher St. The sergeant had enjoyed excellent health, turned to his wife and told her he wasn't feeling right and asked that she summon the family doctor. By the time the physician had arrived the sergeant was dead. . The good sergeant left behind a widow and four children, one of which a boy who was blind.
Meeks joined the police force on 15 Aug 1901 and was assigned to the Northwestern district where he would continue to work unto 15 Aug 1914 when he was promoted to Sergeant and transferred to the Western District.
Only six weeks prior to his death did he join the Police Benefit Association. So his widow was qualified to receive a financial aid, rendered from the program.
