Deputy Zornes will be difficult to replace | Letter

Zornes’ calm demeanor and easy attitude was comforting to the many kids that he interacted with throughout the years

Thank you for running such a great article about master police officer Gary Zornes in your Dec. 15 edition of your paper. I love that it made the front page. Careers like Gary’s deserve that level of recognition. It was a nice summary of a great career that touched many lives.

I first met Deputy Zornes in the 1990s when he would often stop by a late-night teen center in Mountlake Terrace called the Neutral Zone. For years, he would stop by on the Friday and Saturday evenings and interact with the kids and the volunteers. His calm demeanor and easy attitude was comforting to the many kids that he interacted with during those visits. I am happy to see him retiring healthy and being honored in this way. He will be a difficult deputy to replace with his true sense of service to the Northshore community and beyond.

Henry Simon,

Deputy Chief of Bothell Police Department
