It was with great sadness that I learned of the death of Steve LaFrance. The police department and I lost a great friend and benefactor.
Steve gave between 40 and 50 thousand dollars to the Pine Bluff Police Department for the purchase of needed equipment. He bought computers, copiers and other items for the police department that the city could not afford. These items along with equipment bought by Simmons Bank and other generous individuals made the police in our town safer. Steve was a strong supporter of law enforcement and Pine Bluff has lost a dear friend.
I am sending my sincere condolences to the family of Steve LaFrance.
