Sheriff J.B. Smith:

Please accept this letter as official notice of retirement from my position as Chief Deputy, effective December 31, 2012. The opportunity I have had working under your supervision for the past thirty two years and ten months have meant a lot to me. I have learned from the best during my tenure. You gave me the opportunity to work up through the ranks, starting as deputy and retiring as Chief Deputy. I know without a doubt that starting this new chapter in my life has everything to do with your mentoring and friendship throughout my years with Smith County Sheriff’s Office. As you, I will remain active within the community and look forward to maintaining our friendship and working relationship in the years to come.

Again, thank you High Sheriff for everything.

Bobby Garmon
