Mike Pence Biography
However, Vice President Mike Pence did call the family, as did Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, who invited the family to the Capitol to choose a location for a plaque honoring Sicknick.
Despite his support for Trump, the officer never allowed his political views to interfere, and his first big assignment was to work on the 2009 inauguration of former President Barack Obama, his father said.
“She loved his work,” said the elder Sicknick. “He just got along really well with everyone because he was a gentleman.”

The grieving father said he avoided discussing politics with his son, but he hopes the impact of his death will bring change.
“If something good comes out of my son’s death, I just hope it stops all the madness that has been going on in this country,” said his father, without elaborating.
“I’m supposed to die first. Not my son,” said the 82-year-old father. “I’ll never get over this.”
Sicknick’s death is being investigated as a homicide by the Washington Metropolitan Police. The FBI is helping.
Before joining the Capitol Police in 2008, he had served in the Air National Guard and was posted to Saudi Arabia and Kyrgyzstan.
“Her death of him was a waste,” said John Krenzel, mayor of Sicknick’s hometown of South River, New Jersey. “It’s just a tragedy.”

The cop killed during the Capitol riots was also a supporter of President Trump, and his father hopes his death will now help stop “the madness” that is paralyzing America.
Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick was pepper sprayed before being hit with a fire extinguisher while attacking other Trump supporters who stormed the Senate to stop Joe Biden’s confirmation of election victory, his said father to Reuters.
Ambulance crews resuscitated the New Jersey native twice when rushed to a nearby hospital, but Sicknick died the next day, one of five deaths on the day of the misfortune.
“He ended up with a clot in his brain,” his father, Charles Sicknick, told the cable service. “If they had operated on him, he would have become a vegetable.”
The cop, a South River native, was a Trump supporter, though the president has yet to contact the family, his father said.
