We knew him not close friends but a great guy. We had a neighborhood issue and he stayed around beyond what you would exspect. For over 2 hours Until the whole issue was resolved. Truly a great officer. Very sorry for his family and close friends esp. Still does not seem real. We just talked to him a couple days before. He was so nice. Very sad loss .

I apologize for the bad video quality, I originally had a better location but they told me I couldn’t be there.

Hero is a word tossed around casually these days. This man was a true hero. I still get choked up when I think about his unhesitating sacrifice. May God bless the Starzyk family.
