........... Sgt. 'Kerry' , it's was just about 3 weeks ago since I spoke with him last. I would give him a call every so often to say Hi......sometimes he'd even give me a shout out.......I owe a lot to this man. He helped me get started in law enforcement by giving me a chance to come on board with Loxley Police Dept. thru their Officer Reserve Unit. I have nothing but praise for this man......as I began my 'career' and went thru my interview process, he was not just a Sgt. but a person with feelings. He could be as hard as he needed to be , and also compassionate when the times warranted......He ' held my hand' thru the weapons qualification course and from that day on he became a very special person to me. I worked under him for over 2 1/5 yrs and was proud to call him "MY SGT".... I seen his fairness with everyone who he came into contact with...........

..."Sarge , ( what most of us would call him )....we bow our heads today with sadness in our hearts at your passing
