The family of fallen Virginia State Trooper Chad Dermyer recently raised money by selling koozies with his badge number and hashtag, “behappyhumbleandkind” to give back to the community that has been so gracious to them since Chad’s untimely passing in March. The koozies were sold at Bobby’s Auto Service Center at Hayes, whose owner Bobby Polk and his wife Laura are friends of the Dermyer family. The family decided to use the proceeds from the sales of the koozies (inset) to benefit the Gloucester-Mathews Humane Society. The Dermyer family met recently at Bobby’s to present the donation to the GMHS. Shown, from left, are Dick Crowder, president of the GMHS board of directors; Bobby Polk and Chad Dermyer’s daughter Page, wife Michelle and son Phillip. Polk’s dog Jasper is also shown.
