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 just found out about his passing. I purchased tickets from him through ebay and always tell the funny story of meeting him in the rain in Folsom and counting money on the hood of his car. I am a big man but he was HUGE. He seemed like a very nice man. I wish his family the best. I am just blown away by this news.
