07/03/2012: "Undersheriff Zerby Honored As He "Officially" Retires"

If Undersheriff Jon Zerby thought he would be able to have BBQ, receive a going away speech, and then retire (?)…like that was going to happen with a room full of cops and county staff and friends in attendance…he was wrong. What he got was a retirement party and a roast, and not the kind that you can eat.

And he could not have played more into the prepared speeches he was to hear, than to be late for the party, which, of course, he was.

All of the speakers comments, and there were many, had a common thread used to hold together the repeated examples of Zerby’s indecipherable hand writing, and his consistent habit of showing up late, all tied up in the comments that showed the obvious high regard they held him in for his work ethic and sense of humor.

Sheriff Nou, wearing a Hawaiian shirt over his uniform in response to Zerby’s preference for the casual dress, presented a plaque to recognize Zerby’s decades of service to San Juan County.

The Sherriff’s guild presented him with an engraved watch, with the hope he would “use it to be on time” in the future -at which point Zerby glanced down at the watch he was wearing -not a good indicator another watch will help.

Zerby told us earlier that while he was officially retiring, he will continue to help out until a new undersheriff is hired, and may very well come back as needed as a reserve officer; and may once again show up to provide security for the annual 4th of July Rock The Dock that Rotary puts on to raise money to eradicate polio.
