To Cindy and family we are so sorry for your loss. Thanks for sharing OJ with us for so many years.
Cindy, it has been many years since I have seen you all, but I do think of you and always wondered how you and OH were. So sorry to hear/ see this news. You two were some of the first I knew in the Paola area. You both are great people. I will never forget how bad OJ would sweat during a patient assessment on a woman in EMT class. Prayers are with you, your family and OJ.
OJ has mentored many officers/deputies along the way, myself included. I will miss you big man. Hope you know you touched numerous lives.
He was such a fine officer and a great friend. Prayers for friends and family.
I was honored to serve with OJ. A man of character who also had a good sense of humor. Rest easy brother.
I only worked with him for about a year. He cracked me up. I’m sorry for your loss.
