RIP Dave, I will miss our patrols together out on Lake Cisco. You liked going out on the lake during the hot days and made quick work of guilting me into going out on the lake with you, just to watch me sweat. You even had a thermos full of "mud" on those hot days in the boat. I also enjoyed our plotting and scheming where we were going to fish when we could come out to the lake, off duty.

You made us all laugh at your joking personality, funny meems, and crazy texts, but you had the knack to turn on the professionalism in a heart beat and getting to work when work needed doing.

You are, and forever will be deeply missed by myself and all of your partners still here at the Cisco Police Department. It was a true honor and a privilege to get to know and work with you during that time. I hope you can see the earlier reflection from the family in Nebraska that you told me about over mud at the Flying J. They haven't forgotten you either.

Although our daily partnership may have ended abruptly, you will NEVER be forgotten. RIP 491!
