CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — In a special ceremony Thursday Mohamad Shamsie, a longtime pillar in the community was honored with a celebration like no other -- he's now an honorary Nueces County sheriff's deputy.

Shamsie won't be allowed to carry a gun, and he's not going to be performing deputy duties in the county. After all, he'll be a little too busy enjoying 90 years around the sun. 

"I wanna thank Sheriff Hooper -- very kindly -- nice gentleman and I'm honored," Shamsie said.

A man of few words, but his service to the community speaks for itself.
