Not to date myself, but I remember Joel when he was our tool crib attendant at HP, always had a smile on his face and a great sense of humor to go along with it. Always telling me about his ride alongs with various police departments while he was in training..... Rest In Peace my old friend

Way too young and off duty with only his "off duty" handgun in solo foot pursuit of a suspect......... EPA was a little short on PD resources in those days. RIP Joel
