I served in the USAF with Andrew and he was a very dedicated Airman, and a loyal friend. I have no doubt that dedication carried over into his service as a Deputy. Thank you for your service to the country and community. RIP, brother.

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.
