Sgt Montoya I just had a long chat with your son retired Sgt Scott Montoya (Gallup PD too.) It was a pleasure to help get you where you belong after 37 years...on the Memorial honored for all time for your sacrifice. You would be very proud of your two boys who both followed in your footsteps and served in law enforcement.
All is well rest easy.

Rest in peace Sergeant Montoya. I am humbled to leave the first reflection. Thanks for serving. No officer should be without a reflection.
