"He was a tireless leader even before he was one of our leaders," said Trappe Deputy Chief John Bolger of Trooper Sisca.



He comes from a family of first responders. His father is a deputy for the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office; his father-in-law and wife are members of the fire company.

He was preparing to become a father in the coming months.

"I'm broken-hearted. It's just not the way life should be," said Chuck Testa, a teacher at Perkiomen Valley Middle School, who remembers having Sisca in class. "Branden was a very jovial. A nice young man. Sometimes had his silly moments, but always a pleasure to have in class."

Sisca enlisted in February of last year and graduated from the 161st cadet class.

On Thursday, it was a somber salute in Bucks County as law enforcement from around the region paid their final respects to Trooper Mack.

The 33-year-old father of two girls was remembered as a man dedicated to service and family.

Mack spent his entire six-year state police career at Troop K in the Wynnefield Heights section of Philadelphia.

Those who want to support Sisca and his family are asked to consider donating to the Montgomery County Hero Fund.
