Tomorrow marks 42 years that our never forgotten Ingleside hero died doing his job. I was the 1st officer on scene when he failed to answer his radio call following a chase of a fleeing driver. I was a young Deputy then. Tomorrow I’m honored to be at the ceremony by Ingleside PD honoring their only fallen officer. God Bless our brother...
