I want to thank you and tell you I have never forgotten your sacrifice. Today is my last day on the job after 36+ years of law enforcement. I had the career and life you should have had. Thank you for being my friend and teammate at Carthage College. Thanks for taking this freshman from Wisconsin under your wing and for making sure I went to class and found the library. You were my role model both on and off the field.

By providence I served in a City where your Uncle lived and you visited often. That connection always was there and your cousins are wonderful people. Dave I tried to sere in a manner I know you would have. Your picture hung on my locker my entire career and today I take it down, but I will never forget.

Your police funeral was my first and unfortunately there have been too many since. My prayers to all who have the Courage to serve honorably.

Until we meet again old Friend,

Timothy J. Roets, Chief of Police
Watertown Police Department, Wisconsin
