Thoughts and Memories of Bill Baruday
I first met Bill at a local dive shop. I taught me to dive and I soon worked for him at that dive shop. I have been working for the Hot Springs Police Dept. for 12 years now. Bill did police work because he loved it. Bill loved life to it's fullest. He always strived to be the best and was one of the best at everything he did in life. Bill did more in a short lifetime than most will ever do. He is a hero, and is truly missed. Godspeed Bill.
