To the Family, Fellow Officers and Friends of Ptlm. John Dryer I offer my sincere condolences. I met John once and he made such a favorable impression, a good officer. Now he is gone and a large void remains.

I pray that the angels welcome him into Paradise and he find eternal rest. We can best honor him by remembering him.

Officer John David Dryer, you were a brother officer, my vet, and most of all a friend. I remember first starting this job not knowing what to expect and often not what to do. Fortunately you always answered your phone any time I needed a question answered. I know God has made a special place in heaven for you, and the many other brothers we have lost in this job. I always admired how many different jobs you held and did each one of those jobs were done 100% every time. You would help anyone or any animal that needed it with a smile. Dave I shall always remember you. Rest In Peace my brother and my friend. God bless your family and loved ones.

Thank you for sharing Officer Dryer with our law enforcement community. When an officer gives the ultimate sacrifice, it is a loss for our nation, your community and most certainly your family. You will be in my prayers during your time of loss, especially during this time of year that is so treasured as we celebrate Christmas with family.
