Kenton Britt and I attended the same Accident Investigation course in 1984 when I was assigned to Hwy Unit #2 in Brooklyn. He was one of the nicest guys you could ever meet and always greeted you with a smile. I too, like Lt. Yee, thought of Dwight when I heard of the passing of Hwy unit #3 P.O. AnastasiosTsakos after he was hit by a drunk driver while handling a vehicle accident with a fatality. My thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Tsakos' family and the members of Highway Patrol Unit #3. Kenton and Anastasios, may you both rest in peace.
