Employer: First Financial Bankshares

Position: Compliance Officer

Lifelong Abilene resident. Wife Melanie, two grown sons, three grandsons ages 2-6. Member of Pioneer Drive Baptist Church. Graduate of APD class 21 in 1978. Retired from APD in 2016.

When the APF was formed, I was contacted and offered a position on the board, as the board sought a recent retiree who might have knowledge of the inner workings of the PD.

I accepted the position as I felt it would be a great opportunity to stay in touch with the officers, but more so to be a part of an organization designed to assist the department and individual police personnel in times of need.
