Locnload- if you have occassion to talk with any of his fellow deputies- family needs to check to see if the Deputy was a member of the NRA. Check for membership cards, copies of American Rifleman around the house, etc.
Folks forget that the NRA provides life insurance at no charge to members- if you are an LEO that is killed in the line of duty- $25,000.
Any of you that ARE LEO's- mention this to your HR department.
And may God hold him and keep him and his family.
