I was hired at the DeQueen Police Department on 29 April 1982. I met Bill that day and was immediately impressed. Bill helped train me, pointed out my mistakes and helped me learn what it took to be a police officer. Bill taught me firearms and many other things. He was also a great friend. Rest in Peace my friend.

(Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.)
(Matthew 5:9 NIV)
