No one has posted for this young man in several years. I did not know him. I did grow up in the area, lots of good people. God rest your soul, Deputy. I am sure your memory still lives and you are loved and missed. My family and I sleep a little safer each night knowing others like you are manning the wall. To any law enforcement reading this, do not believe what you see on the news these days, most citizens support you and thank you.
