    Clyde Wayne Ward- Barney to those of us who knew him through his police career. He shared a very difficult time with me and guided me in so ways. His sense of humor, his left-handedness, and generally good personality is what I remember. Barney & I thought alike. My deepest condolences for Joyce, Nicole and all family & friends. Rest In Peace, Lt. Ward.

    Barney was a man of character and an excellent police officer. Our world would be a better place if more of us live as he did. He will be missed by those he touched as he traveled the road of life.
