Tough as nails but as genuine and honest as they come. He was a hard guy not to like and impossible not to respect. Good Guy, sorely missed.

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

I will forever miss and love you cousin, and will continue to make you proud. I love you so very much! Continue to watch over all of us.

Mrs. Taylor

I am a Baltimore City Police Officer . I knew your husband. He was a good friend of mine. Scared me when i first met him. Well to say hes not your typical looking police!!! But he was very good at what he did. When I worked midnights and did DUI arrest he introduce me to hot tea with milk. He would offer to go over to the little store on the block and get me one. He knew DUIs took a long time.

Anyways, he was a good man. I'm riding in the Police Unity Tour this May 2014. I'm riding in his memory. This bicycle tour starts in Philly and ends in DC. I'm collecting donations so I can ride in his memory.

I would like to speak with you for more ideas.

Allan-Thank you so much for leaving a reflection. I too hope that those who continue to make our difficult time harder will stop. Myself and those that love and want to be in our lives are helping to protect my children from the negativity and those who want to make life difficult. Hard to believe it's been nearly a year. Please be safe and make sure to get home after every shift. Life can change in a heartbeat. Take care of yourself Allan!

Jaques, my dear brother in law....thank you for your beautiful reflection. It's nice to know that you and the club will always be there for the children and I. Sometimes it's best to move on and forgive others for their wrong doings, which I am trying to do. And what is so hurtful is that others who claim to be 'family' hurt innocent children in the process. How tragic that people can become so hurtful and disrespectful during a healing process that will take a lifetime. And to be so inconsiderate of how one is feeling, is completely mind blowing. Thank you for being there for your niece and nephew, who are having such a rough time. I know who I can count on and who I can not count on. It's in these rough times after a loved ones death, that you really find out how people truly are.

Dino or "BIG D" (his motorcycle club knickname) was a TRUE HERO and a TRUE BROTHER to many of us and a WONDERFUL FATHER to his kids...HE IS MISSED BY ALL. REST ASSURED that "WE" will be there for your family...ALWAYS.

I had known Dino for over 25 years. We went to High School together and were friends through our 20's. Life took us both in different paths, but I always considered him a friend. I remember him going to see my Mom when he became a Police Officer. Sadly, I was trying to get in touch with him to tell him I was getting married finally and found out he had passed. He was a good man, and I wish I had stayed in contact with him better.

The holidays were difficult this year without my son-in-law and his children. He wasn't perfect, but he loved his family. Dino you are missed.
