When I was 13, I was on Real Stories of the Highway Patrol(1993).. I believe he was there that night, the thing I remember the most was being told “Don’t run, cuz my partner is the fastest person I know” I had no intentions of running but I can still picture his face as I looked at him, he looked at me like “I dare you to try me” lol I can’t find that episode anywhere but I remembered his name and I also remember when he passed.. He was extremely nice to me as they took me to Foote Hospital for a psych eval, due to my evil step mom.. he didn’t treat me like I was crazy and I appreciated that. My condolences to the family.
