Reminder of ‘heavy cost of freedom’

State Route 795 named for local soldier

A stretch of State Route 795 in Perrysburg Township has been named in memory of U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Belkofer, who died in Afghanistan in 2010.

Lt. Col. Belkofer, a 1983 Rossford High School graduate, was the son of Don and Sharon Belkofer of Perrysburg Township.

“We’d like to thank everyone for being with us to celebrate this day,” said Mrs. Belkofer during a Saturday afternoon ceremony to unveil the sign. “This means an awful lot to Don and me.”
