Paull, 44, a sergeant who had been an Akron officer for 19 years, was sentenced in October to four years in prison after pleading guilty to felony charges of aggravated assault, tampering with evidence, menacing by stalking and other crimes in connection with a series of incidents involving Dekany and other women.
Three of the charges involved the illegal use of a Police Department computer to obtain information about Dekany, 32 female students at the University of Akron where he taught law enforcement classes and 21 area nightclub dancers.

Pry — much will be written in the days to come about your incredible leadership, and your commitment to our community. But, you were an even finer person and friend with an amazing heart. You will be dearly missed by all of us.
His loss will be felt by all those whose lives were made better by his service to his community. He understood the powerful benefits of regional collaboration, and I will miss him as a partner and friend. I send my sincerest condolences to the Pry family and the Summit County community. I respected him and believed he deeply cared for the people of Summit County. Though we mourn the loss of Russ, we give thanks for his many contributions to our region and state. His life enriched us all. We will all miss his leadership and his ability to bring people together. Russ had an uncanny knack for empathizing and identifying with all people, regardless of their age, race, gender, orientation or creed, making him well-loved by all.
Personally, I will miss his friendship, his quick wit and his invaluable advice. We lost greatness today. You will be missed. State Rep. We could chart our course to his guiding light, knowing that his wisdom, compassion and integrity would keep us strong and steady. Though that light may seem dimmer during this painful time, I am hopeful that we someday can take comfort in seeing others around us do good and know that it is because of the leadership and inspiration Russ imparted on all he touched. Russ was a committed public servant who always worked for what he believed was best for the citizens of Summit County.
During my time as a member of Summit County Council, Russ and I sometimes disagreed on policy matters, but he always treated me courteously and professionally. Russ loved the people of Summit County and served them with an open heart and generous spirit, always fighting for progressive values. He was a great champion for Summit County Democrats, and he helped nurture the current generation of Democratic leaders.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family. I have never seen a better leader than Russ Pry, who made local government work efficiently and effectively for the people he represented.

He had no ego and always brought people together to make lives better for ordinary people. There is a huge hole in Summit County today and a huge hole in my heart as well — one that can never be filled. But we can all learn from how Russ conducted himself; always with humility, always responsibly and, for those of us in public life, always making sure government was creating opportunity for those who were looking to get ahead in life.
He was a friend, a leader, a generous and brilliant public servant lost too soon. Ted Strickland, former Ohio governor and U. Russ will be remembered as a true champion for Ohio families and someone who worked tirelessly to improve his community, and our state. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and I wish them peace. For nearly 10 years, he fought relentlessly for sustainable jobs, securing the rights of our veterans and ensuring access to quality education for all of our children. He worked tirelessly to secure a brighter future for all citizens of Summit County.
He will truly be missed. He was a dedicated and exemplary public servant as well as a strong supporter of the university. The university was honored to recognize his accomplishments by presenting him with the Alumni Honor award in His steady hand will be sorely missed throughout the university and the entire community.
