Great friend. He will be missed. Marshall, Neil Harris, and Jim Mahan all went with me on a road trip to Tucson, Az. I was going there to do some testing for the Tucson Police dept. Needless to say it was some trip. Many memories on that trip. I’ll leave it at that RIP old friend. My sympathy to the family
