You were a great man and a great officer. I appreciated all the support, training, and teaching you gave me. I will never forget your laugh, and how you were always willing to help. It was such a pleasure visiting with you a couple of months ago. You strove for excellence in Law Enforcement, as well as being a great family man. I will miss you, and miss serving with you. My prayers go out to your family, close friends. When god called you to heaven, he got an angel that will look over all of us.

Thank you for your selfless service to our community. You are a great man and a great law enforcement officer. You were committed to whatever you chose to get involved in, Patrol, SWAT, FOP to name a few. You will be greatly missed. You were a great dedicated warrior in protecting your community and I thank you for that. No one knows the courage it takes to do the job you did unless they've been there. You will always be remembered. My prayers go out to you and your family.
