A police officer should be remembered not by how he died, but how he lived! A great man has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family and the Harris County Sheriff's Office. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!

Sgt. Raymond Scholwinski has been my first line supervisor for the past 2 1/2 years. I can't say that I knew Raymond well, but even knowing him briefly, I quickly recognized him as an exceptional supervisor. He treated me with kindness, respect and dignity, the same as he treated everyone. He was good at recognizing deputies' strengths and bringing them to light. Raymond wore the uniform and badge with pride, as evidenced by his professional appearance and demeanor.

Raymond was kind, caring, generous and considerate. He bought gifts out of his own pocket to commemorate an employee's retirement. He took time to stop and speak with you, despite his many duties. He was a devoted family man and also a friend to many at HCSO. He was quick to offer help to anyone.

Indeed, the Harris County Sheriff's Office and community lost an exceptional man and leader, his name is Raymond Scholwinski.

It was an honor and my privilege to have served with him. Rest in peace, we'll take it from here Ray.
