This is a sad loss. Talk about a dedicated man, he was 81 and still serving. A Korean War Veteran and 29 years serving his fellow citizens back home deserves the sincere thanks of everyone.

Sounds like a GREAT man. Wish I could have met him. He's watching over all of us in the law enforcement community. Rest in peace my brother.
