Harold J. Frahm, a retired Alpine Police Department sergeant, passed away November 29, 2016 in Cuero, Texas.
A memorial service is planned in May by Alpine police.
Harold was the firstborn of Harold and Anna Frahm on June 5, 1944, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Harold moved to Alpine after driving down the U-Haul truck for his mother and stepfather in 1972. The crisp, clean air and gorgeous views enticed him, but after spending a night out under the stars, he was enthralled.
Returning to Wisconsin, he packed up what he needed and made Alpine his home. Doing odd jobs and painting, he soon was hired as an Animal Control Officer for the City of Alpine. Later he became a police officer and attained the rank of Sergeant. As a training officer to many new hires, he was well-known for his ability to defuse volatile situations without violence, and his trusted dog Daisy was the unofficial mascot of the PD.
Harold also served in the Alpine Volunteer Fire Department and was a certified arson investigator.
He retired and endured a long, difficult battle with Parkinson’s disease but now is at peace. Harold dearly loved his brothers in blue, along with his dogs, fishing, car racing and computers. His legacy would be to accept people as they are and spread peace with each encounter.
Harold is survived by his mother, Anna Frahm of Victoria, Texas; brother John S. Frahm (Marcy) of Munds Park, Arizona; sisters Deborah Frahm of Stuart, Virginia, Rebecca Garza of Fort Davis, SuzAnne Kroll (Thomas) of Victoria, Texas, and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father; a brother, James R. Frahm; brother-in-law retired Naval Sr. Chief Carlos Garza and niece, retired US Army Capt. Fayette M Frahm.
A cremation was performed, and a private burial will be at St. Boniface Catholic Cemetery in Hobson, Texas.
