Dominic’s Ripple: Carrying on the legacy

(WKOW) — Dominic May was the pride and joy of his parents, Meghan and Casey.

He loved soccer, tractors and helping people. His dream was to become a police officer. So, he was excited to meet Police Chief Mike Koval at the Kids Expo last spring.

That memory was fresh in Koval’s mind when he answered a call on July 13, 2018 about a young boy who had been hit by a car.

The boy turned out to be Dominic.

Dominic died at 5-years-old, but Koval made his dream come true by naming him an honorary officer.

Dominic was laid to rest with a police honor guard and escort. The outpouring of support amazed the may family and inspired them.

Since then the family created a charity called Dominic’s Ripple. In their first event, they handed out backpacks full of school supplies to local kids.

Then, came the idea to raise money for a K-9 unit for the Madison Police Department.

Tuesday on 27 News at 10, Lance Veeser talks to Koval and Dominic’s parents about the legacy and impact of a young boy whose life ended way too soon.
