AJ was a good friend. I met him when he came to the old Cary Area Rescue Squad back in 83-84. He left to go to the Marines and was trained as a firefighter. If I am not mistaken, he served at Cherry Point MAS and Bogue Field. Our paths crossed again years later in Chatham County when FirstHealth took over EMS there. He was my shift supervisor there, and without a doubt was one of the best. His concern for the welfare of his crews and for the public was head and shoulders above all. One day when I was working EMS203 he showed up on the scene and we talked and got caught up. A few weeks later I saw him at the HP’s exhibit and my wife and I talked to him for a little while.

I have no doubt that he approached his job with the patrol the same as he did with the Marines and as a paramedic. SHP has lost one of their best.

Take care, AJ. We will miss you.
