LCpl Andy "Ace" Nowacki was a larger than life character who always went above and beyond to protect in his role as a Marine and as a peace officer in Grand River, Ohio. Ace always put the safety of others ahead of his own. Because of Ace's commitment to his role as protector and peace keeper, his family established The Andy Nowacki Foundation.
