I remember it as if was yesterday, when i heard the news, i was heart broken, even though i was fairly young at the time but i do remember meeting SGT. Lynch almost a month earlier at Casa Grande's annual Anti- Crime night. He was at the swat booth with a smile big as could be, he truly loved this career, a career I'm just starting as an Explorer, and although I have now been living in Wyoming since November of 2009, my heart is still with SGT. Lynch and his family, friends, and the Casa Grande PD.

Although I now live in Wyoming, my heart still lives on in Casa Grande, Arizona where it belongs.

Rest In Peace SGT. Tate A. Lynch
