Over A Remarkable RCMP Career

Over the years and over the miles, I have made hundreds of friends while serving on RCMP assignments across Canada and America, throughout Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe & Central America. No matter the continent or the country, these friends made a huge difference in my life.

My career with the Force was long, rewarding, challenging and exciting. I was very fortunate to have met good friends in a variety of situations at home and in far away places. I was fortunate to have met people from all walks of life.

In every case, all of these people were good natured, hard working and positive about life. They all had some fond connection to the Force and they spoke proudly of the RCMP and its work in Canada.

I tip my Stetson to my family and to all my friends and I extend all my affection to you. Thank you!

I am very, very indebted to Canada and to the Force for a long and remarkable career. I am very honoured to have served Canada as a police officer.

All the work on the website, database and the blog is done voluntarily -- in honour and in memory of all the deceased members of the Force -- many of whom I knew.

I am very pleased to share my memories, photos and some letters from friends.
