LT. ZIELKE HONORED

Bunting was hung outside of Town Hall this week for Edward Zielke, a retired Livingston Police Department lieutenant who died last week. Lt. Zielke served in the U.S. Army as a Specialist 4th Class during the Vietnam War, from 1965 to 1967. He was awarded the National Defense Medal and the Vietnam Service Medal. He began his career as a Livingston Police officer in 1968, was promoted to sergeant in 1979, was reassigned to detective sergeant in 1980, and promoted to lieutenant in 1984. He retired from the LPD in 2011 after 43 years of service. “As a new officer in 1989, Ed Zielke was one of my first supervisors,” Livingston Police Chief Gary Marshuetz said. “He was dedicated to serving Livingston and possessed many great qualities, including honor, service, and commitment. To this day, I still strive to raise my abilities to the level he attained. Ed gave back to the community in many ways.

This year in particular, in the absence of a public ceremony for the first time since those 2001 attacks, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we must do what we can to remember the moment and honor the seven Livingston residents we lost that day.
