RIP, Willard Mohn

Former Upper Nazareth Tp Supervisor Willard Mohn passed away on Wednesday. He's a former Nazareth police officer who went on to become police chief in Stockertown and Upper Nazareth. He advocated 24-hour police protection and was also a proponent of the Nazareth Library when less enlightened souls were trying to close it down.

"It is a sad day for the Officers of the Nazareth Borough Police Association," stated their President, Fred Lahovski. "Officer Mohn embodied all the things that are righteous about the police service. He has influenced generations of Nazareth Police Officers in encouraging the golden rule, 'Treat other as you wish to be treated.'"

He once wrote me a speeding ticket in Stockertown after using an old timing device that hadn't been calibrated since the invention of the hour glass. He said I was traveling 39 in a 35 zone. Old Elmo Fry laughed the thing out of court. The chief was still a very nice man, throughout. RIP.

Willard was a very nice man. There was a time, I believe, that he WAS the department in Andreas Stocker's town. So sad to hear of his passing.

We used to walk home from Memorial Hall, leaving our cars in the lot. Occasionally, we'd pass Willard on speed trap/dui duty and he'd always say hello and once jokingly thanked us for not making him do his duty.

This world could use a few more Willard Mohns, no doubt about it.
