    I personally knew and worked side by side with this man. He was an amazing paramedic, mentor, leader and friend. Nobody knows everything about someone's personal life. So we need not judge. His death hit our service hard. I was working the day this happened and let me just say, it was the worst shift of my life. However, I am very proud of how my fellow co-workers pulled together and got through this. We are still feeling the loss of a great man, but we continue to do what it is we love to do. HELP PEOPLE. FOr those of you that choose to voice stupid comments and beliefs, please, have respect for us, keep them to yourself. And those of you who choose to voice them here, prepare to be chastized. We are a family and we stick together. How he was lost doesn't matter. We lost a brother and that's all that needs to be said. And thank you to those who have expressed condolences and extended prayers. -A Duplin County paramedic.

    Not a one of us is perfect - nor immune to life's stressors. This man gave alot of himself to help others and no doubt saved lives and helped teach others to do the same. We should honor his life and his service to the community regardless of cause of death and pray for his family and that child. May he rest in peace.

    I thank Witn for not posting my comment. I told off the person who had the untactful comment of telling how he died.Yes I know it is freedom of press and expression,but a little common courtesy and respect should have been used. Would you want someone to have attacked your character after died on here and hurt your family like you did?? I guess it does not matter to you.To Former EMS I too would not like to have working on anyone of my family or me! You have to be a little more sensitive than that what you are.Ang you hit the nail on the head.I think a lot of people need training in Manners and Tactfulness. Most of all RESPECT!If you have nothing good to say about someone who gave a lot of his personal life to help the next man or persons out in the time of need keep your mouth shut . God bless all of the Fire fighters and Ems workers. Oh and by the way I did over 20 years in the business so I know first hand how you have to give up alot to help . I did it because I love people!

    I did not personally know this man, but it is obvious that he was well thought of in Duplin's system and other areas. Give the man credit for what he had accomplished before this tragic incident. As a medic myself, not only do you have stress from your personal life, you have BS calls that you get called for that really doesn't need an ambulance but they don't care cause they don't have to pay for it and will tell you that. Don't get me wrong, I love to help people in need, but when you are told I only called you so I can get in the ED faster it gets very frustrating. Then the next call you have (before you leave the hospital) is a child with an asthma attack and before you can get there, the child stops breathing. Do you know what it feels like because you couldn't do enough to save that child? It is VERY STRESSFUL and different people react to this stress differently. Lets just remember him for the unselfish helping person he was.

    A great man, friend, teacher, and leader is gone but will never be forgotten. Those who new him and were close to him his spirit will be with each and everyone of us, guiding us and watching over us as we do what we do best....

    he was a great man, and saved many lives, anyone with anything bad to say about him, should remember when you talk about a fellow brother, you may need us one day...and when you do regardless of your ignorant comments, we will do our job, and save you, care for you and comfort you in your time of need. because he would have done the same...stupidity is job security for us, and being former ems you only add to the tab, in addition I want you to know that obviously you didnt stay for a reason and I just want to say thank you, I wouldnt want someone like you coming to my home, caring for my family.

    you know some people have no idea how hurtfull thier comments will be when people read them. The family, and the coworkers, firemen and EMS workers everywhere mourn the loss of a brother taken way before his time. People should try and understand that everything you know should not be told or posted. For all the great things this young man has done for his community, and humanity for that matter, he should be given thanks and kindness from others in his passing. Reguardless of how he died, he gave of himself more than your average person will ever understand!!!! PLease post a rebuttle to your poor choice of words in your post....do not bring down the man, for he was a public servant who does not receive the needed thanks or recognition!!!!!!!!

    suicide? Oh good greif. give me a break. this is good example of "it's okay to have unexpressed thoughts." My prayer is for comfort to this man's family and to his friends and to his community. He served his county well.

    "Hello!!!" What useful purpose did your comment serve? Could it be that you would do well to receive some Sensitivity Training?
