Vigil Held for Man Hit and Killed On Gettysburg Avenue
DAYTON -- A memorial is growing on Gettysburg Avenue where Christopher Frock was struck and killed by two cars. The crash has sparked controversy over the lack of crosswalks and sidewalks in the area.
Frock's family and friends walked from the Gateway men's shelter on Thursday, to the spot where he was hit and killed. They laid flowers and held a candlelight vigil, after police gave them a safety escort down the street.
"This is heartwarming," said Frock's niece Jackie Apostolu. "This lets us know that we are not alone and it tells us that everyone he knew, knew what a wonderful person he was."
The group attending the vigil remembered him as a man who was trying to turn his life around.
"No matter which hard situation he faced he just kept going," Apostolu said. "He was a fighter. He remembered his family and he took care of them too."
"He would give you his last token to get on the bus," said his childhood friend Joe Copeland. "That's just the kind of guy he was."
The night Frock was hit, he walked the same route the group did during their vigil, with no sidewalks or crosswalks.
"It's so our family could make that last walk that our uncle had to make... safely," said nephew William Frock Jr.
The city of Dayton has begun to address the issue.
"We send our condolences," said Patricia Rickman, chairperson of the Southwest Priority Board. "The city will be putting up lights in the target spots as soon as they can."
"Bring them a sidewalk, a walking path, a crosswalk... They need it," Apostolu said.
"I don't want to give them any ill will but I know they can do better," said Copeland.
Dayton Public Works confirmed they have submitted a request for upgrades to Miami Valley Lighting who owns the streetlights on Gettysburg Avenue.
