Craig Gromek, his wife, Ruth Gromek, and their three children were photographed at a niece’s wedding in May 2014. Ruth Gromek said she and her husband danced a polka that night — the last dance they had; Craig Gromek has trouble walking now. Gromek was a St. Paul police sergeant and worked for the department for 25 years. He had to retire in 2013, after he was diagnosed with ALS and dementia. A fundraiser, Unite and Fight boxing event in Minneapolis, is being held for him on Saturday, March 14, 2015. Photo courtesy of Ruth Gromek.
