A Metro Vancouver resident is celebrating Halloween this year while paying tribute to recently fallen fellow Canadians, through a pair of pumpkin carvings.

In one of the carvings, Abbotsford resident Rick Chong pays tribute to Abbotsford Police Const. John Davidson who passed away last year after he was shot in the line duty.

He was taken to hospital, but ultimately succumbed to his injuries. He was hired by the APD in 2006, and before his death had worked as a police officer for 24 years, including in the UK.

Chong’s second pumpkin pays tribute to the Humboldt Broncos hockey team that was involved in a horrific bus crash in which 15 members of the team were killed and 14 others were injured.

Chong’s efforts were recognized by the APD, who shared photos of his work in a tweet.
