I personally knew Thomas. He made an impact on many lives and people who came to know him. I worked for Volusia County and he was the prisoner transport driver for DBPD. He always brought a smile to our faces and we were all so excited when he went full-time to be a road officer. It was a tragic loss we all felt when he passed. And unfortunately I am reminded of him every time another officer passes that I know. I hope you have found paradise Thomas and I will see you again when my watch ends.
