Tough man to kill: Detective rebounding after amputations
Pneumonia robbed him of both legs below the knees, his left arm at the bicep and all the fingers of his right hand

A bad case of pneumonia — likely contracted while working in the San Bernardino County sheriff's jail in Victorville — led to an infection that robbed him of both legs below the knees, his left arm at the bicep and all the fingers of his right hand.
