There is an effort to rebuild a memorial for a fallen hero that was destroyed during Tropical Storm Isaias.
The Gazebo Memorial in the Washington Avenue Park in Seaford was built by Cory Levy as an Eagle Scout project in 2011.
It honors the memory of John Capano, an ATF agent who was killed by friendly fire during a robbery attempt at a Seaford pharmacy.
Legislators Steve Rhoads and Rose Walker are pledging to get the money needed to rebuild it.
Cory Levy is away at college, but his father Kevin says the project was important to his son.
"He was upset. He immediately worked on it, taking phone calls, establishing a Facebook page," said Kevin Levy.
Kevin Levy said it originally cost $8,000 to build the gazebo and his son raised the money by collecting metal, holding garage sales and going door to door.
The legislators say they hope to have the gazebo rebuilt by the spring.
