Uncle Mike, you will be missed very much! Your heart has helped many, known and unknown. I always loved spending the summers at your house in CC, you always made sure we had a blast visiting you! You were always smiling and making jokes, and there's no doubt in my mind that you are still doing the same in Heaven! You gave your life doing what you loved, I can only hope I can do the same. Your legacy will live on, not only through your family but all your friends, colleagues, and those you have helped along your journey.

I happened to be the dispatcher on this channel when the incident occurred. Chief Pimentel always made me smile when he checked on. He would always say "Good Morning" over the radio when he signed in over the radio. He was a good man doing his chosen profession happily.

Hello everyone,

As I watched the 10 o'clock news Saturday night the image of the fallen
police chief reminded me of the times he and I shared prayer, police duties,
and rides together on motorcycles. Michael Pimentel and I shared many things
together and now we share his death. My heart aches
for his family but my heart also rejoices that he is with our Lord walking
the streets of heaven. My friend will be missed but Jesus reassures us that
He has an eternal mansion prepared for us. We don't know when God will call
us home, but we do know that a home is waiting. Please pray for Michael's
family and each other as we rejoice in knowing that death is not the end but
the beginning.

God bless you all,

Steven Brooks - Christian Motorcyclists Association Minister/Former Police Officer
