Gunny, you were a sweet guy with a sharp sense of humor and a whole lotta police knowledge. I will miss you and so will the whole DKPD family. Rest in peace, Gunny.

Gunny was funny. Always with the window down and his arm out smoking a cigarette. He handled the 150's territory better than a rookie. You passed on a lot of knowledge. Rest in peace.
