As I sit here in my office and reflect back on the times I got to work with Fitts up in the Cactus area and remembering the fun times we had. The long conversations we had as we sit out in the dark nights in the cold weather checking those business. You just could not have found a better friend, Deputy, and just all around person. Fitts rest in peace my friend. You are walking with the angels.
