Monday marked one year since Sergeant Michael Todd May, of the Monongalia County Sheriff's Department, lost his life during a police pursuit on Interstate 79 in Pennsylvania.
The days of May's funeral thousands of folks lined the streets of downtown Morgantown to say goodbye to the fallen officer.
Since that time Jerod Green, the man accused of slamming his truck into May's cruiser, has been convicted of third degree murder.
Perry Palmer, the Chief Deputy at the Sheriff's Department, trained Sergeant May in the field.
On Monday Palmer told 5 News it was hard to believe that a year had passed since May died in the line of duty.
Although May's gotten he definitely hasn't been forgotten.
All of the cars at the sheriff's department are still marked with his number.
Palmer said May always had a smile on his face. He also mentioned May was on of the most reliable officers he's worked with.
"Todd always had a smirkish grin on his face," Palmer said. "He was easy to get along with. He spoke his mind, but that's something I appreciated with Todd. All the guys loved him."
Green is set to be sentenced on Tuesday afternoon in a Pennsylvania courtroom.
