    The Dave Wood family,

    So sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. We worked together
    while I was with KHP, and often enjoyed running-into
    Dave following his KBI retirement, like at Mission’s
    Hy-Vee store. Dave was a good guy, and exceptional inv-
    estigator and real credit to Kansas law enforcement.

Leave a Condolence.
