Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Sergeant David M. Furrh

when your loved one,leaves the house to go to work,always say i love you, because that may be the last time you see them alive. Resolve all your arguments immediately, because you may not have the time ever again to do it. Life is short and so uncertain, love and appreciate what your loved one does for a living. Protecting the public at All Costs.

I worked with Sgt. David Furrh at the Gonzales County Sheriffs Department. I was a dispatcher for the department, David was always an asset to the department, Very professional, always willing to help someone in need. He, his wife Tollie and children will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

David displayed a passion for what he did everyday. I knew David for almost 12 years. From the first meeting serving him and his fellow officers at a Hallettsville eatery. To riding along with him and working with him as a dispatcher for the Lavaca County Sheriff's Department. We even spent time working together on the volunteer ambulance service in Moulton. He was a big inspiration to me leading to my attending the police academy. I saw over those years that he gave all of his energy to those around him. I could not begin to explain in this forum the thousands of valuable lessons he taught me alone. All I can say is that he will be greatly missed by anyone who knew him. He will live on forever in all of our hearts.

Deputy Furrh, your watch is over and our department salutes you and your tour. May you watch over the gates of heaven, as you watched over the citizens of Gonzales County, Texas.

I was married to David when he attended Police Academy and during the first 7 years of his career in law enforcement. I was never more proud of anyone that I was him, and continue to be to this day. He had a passion for what he did and he gave his life fighting the evil that is so prevalent on our streets today. Our son will continue this tradition and I will be equally proud of him because I know that he, like his father, will wear the badge for the right reasons - to protect and serve the people of his community. I pray for God's blessings on every man who wears their badge with honor and dignity, and I pray God's comfort and healing on every family who has to bear this grief.
