Genesee County sheriff’s deputy to be honored during National Police Week

A Genesee County sheriff’s deputy who died unexpectedly last summer will be honored during National Police Week in May.

Deputy Frank G. Bordonaro’s name will be added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. A candlelight vigil, to dedicate his name and those of other officers who died in 2014, will be held May 13 in Washington.

Bordonaro, a 19-year veteran, suffered a fatal heart attack in his home last July 8, hours after completing a midnight shift. The 44-year-old deputy was a field training officer, child safety seat technician and had mentored several new officers during his tenure.

This past January, Bordonaro was posthumously honored as Officer of the Year by the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office.
