I was a new hire for Hinesville PD GA. Then less than 5 years, Police Officer, a “yankee” from Wisconsin. Oh the fun everyone had listened to me for vehicle stops, communications… dispatch forever getting a smile

I met Ronnie once at a Post Christmas party 1983 … a kind man, a proud Trooper.
His loss was devastating, my 1st Officer funeral.
To this very day, every January for the rest of my life … I will remember that day (10th ), the patrol radio communications echoes often in my mind. It will brings a tear to my eyes.
If I could say one thing to Ronnie today, I’d tell him … “you made a difference”
Always in my prayers and often in my thoughts brother. Eternal Peace
BlueBlood family no boundaries
