An Olathe (Kan.) PD motor officer scheduled to be in a presidential motorcade died Tuesday afternoon after suffering a heart attack, reports the Topeka Capitol-Journal.

He was working the day shift from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. when he collapsed.

God bless this man and all he did for his town. He was way too young. Just sad.

RIP Ofcr. Kern. Our prayers and thoughts are with your family and with your agency. Your brothers and sisters will take it from here, rest easy.
