Thomas Barajas, retired from the Woodbridge Police Department after 34 years of service, leaving as lieutenant of the Criminal Investigation Division in 2004.  During his retirement he could be found gardening, swimming, and mostly playing with his 7 grandchildren.  He was well-known, widely respected and very loved by all who had the privilege of knowing him.  There was never a time when he would not offer help; He can be defined in one word:  SELFLESS
