I had the pleasure of being a patrol sergeant and having Mike on my shift. He was professional and so very great with the citizens he served.
I had a shift bbq and pool party at my house once. It was incredible fun as Mike single-handedly had everyone laughing for hours. (at one point losing his shorts in the pool)
Someone reminded me of that party this week and of course, it brought back memories of Michael Johns.
What an admirable peace officer he was.
Peace to his family. It was a life well lived.
