    My memory of Sgt. Tabs: I transferred from CTF Soledad in ’86, to CMF-South for those who remember. I remember watching this “cool” brother stroll down the walkway to and from control everyday. Always together – uniform ( Class – A ) shoes shined and well groomed. He set the standards high for brothers to follow and a lot of us tried to carry the torch after he retired. He was missed and will be missed. RIP, my mentor.

    Tabbs was a special kinda’ guy. I remember him most when I was new into CDC and he was on the squad at CMF. I was so in awe of his effectiveness in this position. He commanded respect by his very presence and simply, did his job! Early after retiring, I often ran into him at Raley’s grocery store and was amazed at how relaxed he had become, in a retired sorta’ way. His personality and wit had not changed and we always took a few minutes out of our retired lives to catch up with each other and our fellow CDC retirees.
    To Marie and the rest of the family, know you are lifted up by our prayers at this difficult time.
