Chuckles, I still relive the nightmare of that fateful evening often as I reflect on the experiences and camaraderie of those I served with who are no longer with us. You, another deputy, and I had met in Logan for a brief time that shift when you received your final call. Your backup was on his way as I headed out to a call as well. A few short minutes later your backup called in the shocking report as he rolled up on your accident scene. As the call went out that you were gone, I cannot express the deep shock and sorrow I felt. As the shift OIC, I cancelled my non emergency call and met the Sheriff at the S.O. where he asked that I make calls to all of the personnel to advise of your passing while he and the patrol lieutenant notified your wife in person. Because of the sacredness of the story that your wife told us about a week after your funeral, I wont mention it publicly. We were comforted, however, by the experience she related. I will always remember your devotion to family, your dedication, and your sense of humor as well as our meeting just minutes before.
