Many colleagues did not know how important John was behind the scenes for the Sheriff's Office. The people that worked closely with John knew. I took over John's job after he passed, and while going through his old work files, I was in awe with his brilliant work. He generously gave his knowledge, expertise, and writing skills to the Sheriff's Office for years. There were countless files titled "For" various different colleagues. Those files summed up his career-always helping others, always there "for" others. Any time somebody references John, I make sure they know what he did, and how valuable and loyal he was. Rest in peace John, I'll try to make you proud.

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.
