Reflections for Patrolman Kevin Simmons

Your passing was a wake call for me. I was glad to be able to be in the capture of your killer. I remember you. Peace to your family.

OMG! Where do I start? I miss you and the firmness that you represented in this family. Sometimes when I think about those who have gone on, I often wonder if you all are having fun sharing stories about the things we did on 59th or even on 119th streets. Sometimes its lonely with the family being gone. Some are gone to death and others are gone to separation and personality disorders and conflicts... But helps me to remain are the memories that we shared...the laughter that binds this family. The fabric of this family have some snags and maybe even some rips, but at the end of it all, we are family even in different places. Continue to rest on and know those who have joined you, are missed tremendously as are you. Oh yeah, Bernards kids are carrying the Simmons name. If you could see Joy, his daughter, you would have to smile because she would remind you of me when I was that age. I am sure you would torture her as well!!! :-) I smile on earth because I know God's loving arms are embracing all who have joined you. Continue to rest on!!!! Love ya much!!!!

Damn Partner, it's been so long since we rode together. I still have tears for you brother. I will always remember you. I can't help but think if I had been with you that night, things would have been different.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 29th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. How very nice that your department memorialized you ...time never diminishes respect.

Rest In Peace

Hey Kevin,

Today as I went to wish my mom a happy birthday, I thought about you and the senseless reason that you are no longer with us. So much have changed and I wish you were still around. In a weird way, I know things would be different for the better if you were. Your birthday is approaching soon, it's so hard to believe that you have been gone for 27 years! WOW....However, I know you are resting in peace.

Miss you Much!

Hey big brother,

Happy Friday to you, I am at work ready to go home and put my feet up and have a well rested weekend. I was thinking about you and Levi. I just kicked it with your cousins Bruce and Derrick Coker and we had such a good time. I had a fish fry and so much more food. I dont want to think about the food, a sister have not yet had her lunch. I really miss you guys, but I know you are in a much better place. I am really hoping to make it to the Memorial Service next year in Oklahoma.

As Salaam Alaikum,

Uncle Kevin, I wish you much peace now that you lay to rest. I never had the opportunity like the other nieces and nephews to get to know you, fight with you, laugh with you, cry with you, and enjoy your company. However, your memory lives on Hard. My mother will never let your spirit die within my Brother (who came five years after me) and myself. Peace Blackman for you were truly the God of the Universe.

I remember Kevin very well,eventhough;when he was killed I was only eight years old. I lived across the street from Kevins Aunt (My mother still resides there.) Kevin use to come by my bus stop every morning and ask me how was I doing and would always tell me to stay out of trouble. I think when I was young I had a little Crush on him...... I know I loved him and I knew he cared about the well being of me and the other kids. He was a great man. I knew him and his broher Johnny, but I never knew he had so many sisters. God bless you all the Simmons and Smith families. He gave me a great respect for police officers, but not all of them are the same a Kevin. Try being like Kevin, show the community you care and they will respond to you differently. I will always love you KEVIN...........

Dear Kevin:

The bible says "there is no greater love than a man to lay down his life for a friend". I know that He must be really proud of you for the unselfish sacrific that you made for so many as a public servant.

I know that it has been a long time coming for the City of Spencer to officially recognized you for the sacrific that you made to keep our community safe. I was truely blessed to be present and a part of the dedication presentation of a memorial room and street sign dedicated in your name on 4/4/08. Your family was so proud, and I could feel the love they have for you. As I read the reflection here, I can tell that your family truely loves you.

It is my prayer that God will bless your family with His love and peace that surpasses all understanding of the past and what is yet to come.

Your sacrifice and my respect for you can only be measured on a Grand scale.

I didn't know you but I think about you. You made the ultimate sacrifice, and you are a hero to me. I wish I could have been there for you. Maybe it could have been different. Your family and fellow officers love and miss you. I thank God for men like you, for you represent the best of us.

I am now since June 04, 2007 the Chief of the Spencer Police Department. In 1982 I patrolled the area around Spencer for the Oklahoma City Police Department. I didn’t know you well then, but we met a few times while on patrol.
Today 04/04/2008 our City had a grand reopening of the newly re-molded police Station. As part of the remodel we have a Memorial / Trophy / Memorabilia room made for the station. We call it the Simmons Room. We also renamed the street that pulls into the Station “Kevin Simmons Way”. Today with many of your family present we paid honor to your memory. With this new room and the street dedication the memory of your service to the City of Spencer will live on.
Thank you Kevin
