Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper

All I keep hearing him say is keep your head up baby girl. From the age of 5 I have looked up to him. He could light up any room he walked into. He was the most selfless person I know. We need more people like him in this world. From his pep talks to me to knowing just what to say to make me laugh or smile, to his amazing cooking you couldn’t resist. He will be missed by everybody that knew him. And for those that didn’t know him they missed out on knowing an amazing man. My prayers and condolences go to his family, friends, and brothers and sisters in blue.
