The Tunnel to Towers Foundation announced it will provide a mortgage-free home to the family of Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy Darnell Calhoun. Deputy Calhoun was shot and killed in the line of duty on Friday, January 13. The 30-year-old was husband and father of two boys with a third child on the way.
“Deputy Calhoun answered a call for help and it cost him his life. He left behind a wife and two boys, and a third child he will never get to meet,” Frank Siller, Chairman and CEO of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, said. He added, “Darnell and his wife were high school sweethearts who were saving money to purchase a home of their own. I am honored to provide them a forever home, which will be a permanent tribute to her husband’s service and sacrifice.”
The Tunnel to Towers Fallen First Responder Program pays off the mortgage or provides a mortgage-free home for the families of law enforcement officers and firefighters who are killed in the line of duty and leave behind young children.
