It is always sad when a person dies while providing service to the community. One who doesn't will never understand. We do it because we love to serve. My respects to his family and to him. I was an Army Chaplain and part of the Death Notification Team. If people would only know... I recently drove by I-10 on my way to AZ City and found his mark and took a picture to share with other retired LEO friends. R.I.P.
