Georgia MUFON pays tribute to one of our ownBy Scott Cantrell
As State Director I was only recently made aware that one of our former State Directors, Retired College Park Chief of police Walter Thomas “Tom” Sheets passed away October 2 of this year. I did not have the opportunity to meet Tom personally but his legacy was still going strong 10 years after his retirement as State Director. Most of what I know and write below was passed on to me by my predecessor who shared much respect for Tom.
Tom continued working with MUFON International after being State Director for Georgia, including helping establish the Office of Professional Standards and serving as its first Administrator. He also worked on various special projects for then MUFON International Director James Carrion. I have the greatest respect for State Director W. Tom Sheets and am honored to have such broad shoulders to stand upon.
