Interment with Full Police Honors will be held in Parkhill Cemetery. The family will receive friends Sunday afternoon from 3:00 to 5:00 P.M. at McMullen Funeral Home, 3874 Gentian Blvd. Columbus, GA.

Corporal Slay was born September 6, 1959 in Columbus, GA son of Thomas Raymond Slay and Barbara Sailers Perryman. He was a Corporal with the Columbus Police Department assigned as a Special Agent with the Metro Narcotics Task Force and was the unit's helicopter pilot. He has been in law enforcement officer for over 32 years in Columbus. He was a member of Fraternal Order of Police, Georgia and Alabama Narcotics Association. He was the security coordinator for Greystone Properties and a member of Rivertown Church in Columbus.

Corporal Slay was also a Flight Instructor and a Commercial Pilot where he piloted the Instrument Airplane and the Rotorcraft-Helicopter. As of November 9, 2007, he had accumulated 4,218 hours in airplanes and 263 hours in a helicopter.

He successfully trained numerous student pilots and was heavily involved in the aviation community. He provided critical air support to the Columbus Police Department and surrounding law enforcement agencies.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Jeffery R. Slay and paternal grandfather, Billy M. Perryman.

Survivors include his wife, Holly M. Slay of Phenix City, AL; mother Barbara Perryman of Valley, AL; father, Thomas Raymond Slay (Marcia) of Smiths Station, AL; son, Jeffery Slay of Columbus, GA; step daughter, Kallie Elkins of Phenix City, AL
*************************************************************************************
Through his more than 30 years in law enforcement, Thomas “Keith” Slay did not let the hardest parts of his job harden his heart.
Mourners at his funeral Monday described not only a dedicated police officer, but a husband, father and faithful churchgoer whose experience fighting crime kept him focused on what was most important in his personal life.
The Rev. David Rathel of Rivertown Church said that after he and Slay, 53, became close friends, the officer once told the minister he could not go hunting anymore because he had seen enough death on the job.
“He told me, ‘David, I can’t hunt. I’ve seen enough times when somebody died,’” the pastor said.

Reminiscent of the verse from Matthew in which Jesus says, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven,” the narcotics agent with all his martial arts and special weapons training chose the least among his fellow churchgoers to nurture at Sunday school, the minister said - the 2-year-olds.
Slay wiped noses and brushed away tears, and soon graduated to another level: the 5-year-olds. Slay became the kindergarten Sunday school teacher - under Rathel’s training: “I taught him. He taught the 5-year-olds.”
Through tears his widow, Holly Slay, talked about the long notes her husband would write her for their anniversary. He wrote that he was thankful to have married the woman of his dreams. “Thank you so much for being my wife and sharing my life,” she read aloud from one his missives.
“No two people loved each other more than we did - maybe the same, but no more,” she said.
His son, Jeffery, talked about his father’s sense of humor and fondness for pranks. “He loved scaring people,” said Jeffery Slay, brandishing a rubber snake his dad used to play tricks on friends. Some in the audience must have seen that snake a thousand times, he said.
The son is not the first Jeffery Slay. Rathel told the story of Keith Slay’s sinking into a depression at age 11 when his little brother Jeffery died. His father, Thomas Raymond Slay, focused on getting his older son out of that lingering melancholy.
Keith Slay got into motocross and racing on the dirt track at Russell County’s East Alabama Motor Speedway. Later they bought an airplane, and flying gave the younger Slay a new perspective, from horizon to horizon, high above the trouble below.
“Sometimes you can’t see reality because you’re too close to it,” Rathel said.
At age 20, Slay joined the Muscogee Sheriff’s Office as a deputy, and later transferred to the Columbus Police Department, where he served as a homicide detective before taking the lead in forming a police aviation unit in 2003. Proficient in fixed-wing aircraft, he traveled to Fort Rucker, Ala., to be trained to fly helicopters. He became a flight instructor in both.
He loved to fly, Rathel said: “He had every aviation rating possible that he could have.”
The aviation unit later operated under the multi-agency Metro Narcotics Task Force to serve not just Columbus, but also Russell County and Harris County.
When the narcotics agent died after a traffic accident last week, he had logged 11,000 hours of flight time, Rathel said. Police said Slay and Russell County deputy Brad Evans, 26, were travelling northbound July 30 in a Ford F-150 with lights and siren running, and had shifted into Veterans Parkway’s center turn lane to pass a Ford Ranger when the Ranger’s 73-year-old driver also moved into the center lane.
Slay, who was driving, swerved to avoid the collision, but the Ranger still sideswiped Slay’s truck on the right rear side, sending it out of control to the road’s west side, where it jumped the curb and hit a utility pole on the driver’s side.
The other driver was not injured. Slay died of his injuries at The Medical Center. Evans suffered a head injury but was released from the hospital later in the week.
During the funeral Monday, Rathel said Slay felt he had faced death before: One night he was flying from LaGrange, Ga., to Columbus, and all of his electronics went out. He had no instruments, no air-traffic control to guide him through the dark.
So he prayed, believing that if his life were there to end, so be it. And he remembered the Chattahoochee River, which he could see from the air. He followed it home.
For the church congregation he guarded like family, he taught self-defense and fitness training - flipping a tractor tire and pulling cinder blocks were among the exercises - directed small group Bible study, took groups on hiking and camping trips, and initiated bicycle outings, “Pedal and Pray with Keith Slay,” Rathel said.
Once when the church grounds were cleared of old trees, Slay bought one pickup truck load of sand after another until all the holes vacated by tree stumps were filled, so no one would be injured.
“He filled the holes of the church in many areas,” Rathel said.
He talked of retiring, and of not retiring, the minister said: Maybe he would descend to that runway and put the badge away, maybe he would veer off and fly on.
“He had to die in action because he didn’t know when to quit,” Rathel said, recalling one of Slay’s favorite sayings for times when the work was wearing on his comrades: “Suck it up, buttercup.”
Now others must carry on Slay’s mission, Rathel said: “When a warrior dies fighting for you, the only thing you can do is pick up his sword and fight on.”
Near the conclusion of the funeral in Cascade Hills Church, guests saw on video screens images from a flyover of Columbus, and together sang one last song - not a mournful hymn but an upbeat toe-tapper:
“I’ll Fly Away.”
Graveside service
At Park Hill Cemetery, over 500 people gathered for a graveside service for Slay. The funeral procession, which included more than 200 police vehicles from departments all over Georgia and Alabama, took almost 30 minutes to file in and park along the cemetery’s winding roads.
Mayor Teresa Tomlinson arrived with Police Chief Ricky Boren and stood in line with Muscogee County Sheriff John Darr, Russell County Sheriff Heath Taylor and Phenix City Police Chief Ray Smith. They stood in front of numerous lines of public safety officers, in uniform and out, facing the stand that would hold Slay’s coffin.
An honor guard made up of about two dozen officers in full dress uniforms from 15 different law enforcement agencies formed a corridor through which members of the Columbus Police/Sheriff honor guard carried the flag-draped coffin to the stand.
Two pipers clad in tartan kilts led the pall bearers playing “The Minstrel Boy.”
Columbus Police Department Chaplain Cpl. Roy Isasi offered a brief eulogy, describing Slay as a dedicated police officer who had a love of flying helicopters, an affinity for Dunkin’ Donuts apple fritters and the occasional practical joke on his fellow officers, and a deep and abiding faith in God.
“Keith is not going to be forgotten. He was a special person,” Isasi said. “Keith is gone for a little while, but those who are right with the Lord, we’re going to see him again.”
Following Isasi’s words, a Columbus Police Department seven-man rifle squad fired three volleys for a rifle salute, which echoed sharply off the steep hills and tall hardwoods surrounding the site.
As the echoes died out, a lone bugler played “Taps” as those in uniform saluted and civilians covered their hearts with their hands.
As the bugler finished, the pipers started in with “Amazing Grace.”
Then, as the large crowd remained absolutely silent, the faint sound of helicopter blades could soon be heard approaching from a tree line nearby. Four police helicopters soon broke into view over the tree line, flying low in formation toward the crowd.
Just as they reached the gathering, one helicopter banked sharply out of the formation and out of sight as the other three held their positions and flew in a “missing man” formation into the distance.
The graveside service ended with the honor guard folding the flag that had draped Slay’s coffin and Boren presenting it and another flag to Slay’s family.
Tomlinson, who is the city public safety director, said she was moved by the number of law enforcement personnel from so many different cities and agencies that attended and by the helicopters’ “missing man” tribute.
“That’s always a very emotional formation, very symbolic,” Tomlinson said. “I think all of Keith’s family and friends were touched by that symbol.”

Our beautiful mother, grandmother and sister passed away peacefully Jan. 14, 2013, at McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah surrounded by her loving family. She will be deeply missed and loved until we see her smiling face again.

Barbara was born Sept. 29, 1935, in St. Anthony, Idaho, to Martin Alonzo "Tex" Hamberlin and Ida Venice Nave. She lived in Idaho until she was 12 years old when her family moved to Brigham City, Utah. She spent many enjoyable years there, and especially enjoyed her time at Box Elder High School where she developed lifelong relationships with many dear friends. Her family later moved to Lewiston, Utah, where she graduated from North Cache High School in 1953.

Barbara married Dale Gardner and moved to California where four of her beautiful children were born. They later divorced and she married Jack Beach, who had a son Elvin, and later they had two more children together. In 1966 the family moved back to Cache Valley and she lived out the rest of her life raising her happy family.

Barbara spent many years working and making good friends waitressing. She also worked many years at Wurlitzer Piano, spent several years in Pennsylvania working for the Sohmer Piano Corporation and later retired from Herff Jones in Logan, Utah. Her favorite parts of work were the friends she made along the way, and seeing someone happy with the work she had done.

She had a magical talent for furniture restoration and working with wood which she shared with many people and businesses. Mom will be remembered most for the gift of love and generosity she shared with everyone and the way she cared so deeply for the welfare of her large family.

Barbara is survived her by her children Buff (Laura) Gardner of North Logan, DeLaine (Shawn) Lawlor of Logan, Jeri (Doug) White of Smithfield, Nikki Long of Logan, Linda Holland of Hyrum and Doug (Jennifer) Beach of North Logan; sister Bonnie Foltz of Providence; brother Mike (Christine) Hamberlin of Alamogordo, N.M.; sister Marie LaNae (Jim) Dial of Hyrum; 20 grandchildren and 35 great-grandchildren.

The Wolf Man of Comstock

Written by Brad Bradley

Wednesday, 23 February 2011

By: Gary Humphreys, Class of 1964

As told by Maudie Belle McNutt Humphreys circa 1950’s

The wolf man was discovered around 1924 near Comstock, Texas on the McNutt Ranch. Maudie McNutt about 10 years of age was riding horse back with her Grandfather Peter McNutt and several hands of the McNutt Ranch. North east of the ranch headquarters near a dirt tank, the group rode upon a lamb that had just been killed. Immediately Pete McNutt said, “look straight ahead and keep riding”. They rode by the slaughtered lamb not looking down. In the past they had found other stock dead as if they had been slaughtered. And Items have turned up missing out of the tool shed. Riding straight ahead and going over a hill Pete instructed little Maudie along with one of the hands to return the Ranch Headquarters.

After Maudie and the hand had ridden a safe distance, Pete and the other hands circled around and returned to the slaughtered lamb. Topping the hill again Pete saw movement at the site. Pulling out their ropes and spurring their horses, they rode in and roped the Wolfman. Not being violent but scared the Wolfman gave in. Pete and his men returned to the ranch headquarters with the captured Wolfman, the dark skinned man was heavily bearded, his hair long and matted, he was unbathed and half dressed in sheep skin with a foul odor.

Standing out front of the rock house near the cool box (a spring where Grandmaw Margaret McNutt kept her perishables in glass jars submerged in the cool water) Margaret, Maudie, Mary and Pauline along with the hand had all five sets of eyes on the Wolfman as they approached the house.

When they reached the house, Pete instructed the men to tie the Wolfman to one of the pecan trees in the yard. Maudie went into the house returned with a fresh glass of water. Pete said he would ride into Comstock the following morning and fetch Sheriff M. L. Whistler out of Del Rio to come and pick him up. That night Pete locked him in the tool shed out behind the house. Sleep was short that night for all. Margaret prepared a plate and Maudie took the plate to the Wolfman. He did not talk but only grunted and ate with his hands. Maudie said other than looks he seemed harmless.

After about three days the Sheriff arrived to transport the Wolfman to Del Rio. Over a cup of coffee Pete and the sheriff discussed that they suspected that the Wolfman had escaped from a mental institution and had probably got off the train near Comstock. Judging from his looks he had been living off the land for some time. Researching the Sheriff’s records from the 20’s nothing could be found as to what happened to the Wolfman. Maudie presumed he was returned to an Institute and lived out his life there.
