Lost a fellow LEO yesterday in Brevard

Post by bonjorno2 » Thu Jan 28, 2016 9:36 pm

Hey everyone, just wanted to share that I lost one of my friends yesterday in an accident on SR528 just after 5am. He was on his way to work when he was involved in a car accident. He was one of the best Men I've ever known and served honorably in the US Navy until he retired, then joined us at Cape Canaveral as a police officer. One of our co-workers started a gofundme page so if anyone is interested in helping out his family it would be greatly appreciated. I am adjusting ok, however it is going to take awhile for things to get back to normal at work.

Thank you, it's hard to make sense why it was his time! I guess somethings never change there.... 18 hours into his gofundme and just passed 7k.
