I remember Deputy Inman very well. I was 11 yrs old and had a huge crush on him. He rode with my dad for awhile when he started in training. He came to our house when we lived out Old Cherry Street Rd by McGraws Cemetery to eat supper with us. I sat right next to him thinking he was the Bomb. I have original picture of the picture on here along with the article. He has forever lived in my heart. I still think of him often.
