Passed your memorial today, and reminded me of my great uncles passing, and another fellow trooper Rick Lebow who was a good friend of the family and was friends with dad and Ret Trooper Robin Kuykendall. Your stories and stories of my great uncle who was the town marshal in Alma killed by the Barrow Gang inspired me to become a LEO. I was a dispatcher, jailer, county deputy, forensic analyst, city police officer, then went on to become Police Chief before having to medically retire but with the heart and strength of a law enforcement officer who seeks to never give up hope for Justice I have continued my work on Cold Cases, and Missing Persons Cases. Thank you for inspiring me, and your legend lives on, and has been an instrumental part in future trooper safety.
