Al, 39 years ago today you were taken from us in what was a horrible accident while responding to help others. That night, waiting for your shift to end and you to join us for a night out with friends turned into the worst night of many of our lives.
You were always a professional and had a strong desire to help the upriver community and did the job well.
I think the only dissenters you had were the fish in the rivers. I always enjoyed working and socializing with you and will never forget the friendship we shared. Please know that you impacted my life as well as a long career in law enforcement. You're the best, my friend.
