The Tunnel to Towers Foundation announced it will be providing slain Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy Darnell Calhoun’s family with a mortgage-free home.
Deputy Calhoun, 30, was shot and killed in the line of duty while responding to a domestic violence call on January 13 in the 18500 block of Hilldale Lane in the unincorporated area of Lakeland Village. He was a 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,” Frank Siller, Tunnel to Towers Foundation chairman and CEO, said. “He left behind a wife and two boys, and a third child he will never get to meet. 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.
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation is dedicated to honoring the sacrifice of FDNY Firefighter Stephen Siller, who laid down his life to save others on September 11, 2001. For more than 20 years, the Tunnel to Towners Foundation has supported the nation’s first responders, veterans, and their families by providing these heroes and the families they leave behind with mortgage-free homes.
