Reflections for Detective Alex Ruperto

Thank you for your service. Prayers for your Family & Department.

Alex was what they called a 'quiet professional.' You hear that saying all the time and you really don't know what that means until there no longer around. A physically & mentally tough guy who never complained. I'm sad that he is no longer here and honored that over the last 21 years I got to work with him closely on our Emergency Service Unit. Wish it would of been longer...

Rest in peace, we will miss you......
