HE WAS CHOSEN AS ONE OF THE HONOREES FOR HIS WORK ON THE DEPARTMENT… BUT HIS SON SAID HE REMEMBERS HIM FOR MUCH MORE: “HE WAS JUST ALWAYS TRYIGN TO HELP PEOPLE… AND HE’S THE GUY I WANT TO BE LIKE WHEN I GROW UP. TYNES — DIED AS A MEMBER OF THE OMAHA POLICE DEPARTMENT. HE SERVED FOR -5- YEARS — BEFORE LOSING HIS BATTLE WITH CANCER.
