In honor of a Davenport Sergeant who passed away, the community will be holding a walk in his memory.

On Friday, February 21, 2014 family and friends will gather at Modern Woodmen Park to hold a candle walk on the Centennial Bridge. The walk will begin at 6p.m.

Sgt. Kevin Marxen, known to his fellow officers as “Rudy,” was the 2nd Shift Patrol Supervisor and a 36-year veteran of the Davenport Police Department.
