I am attempting to locate any distant relative of this officer. I participated in the 2015 Law Enforcement United Memorial Ride, and I rode for A.H. Hamby. I am in possession of the bracelet that I wore to honor him throughout the ride. If anyone happens to read this and knows how to get a hold of any family, please pass it along.
