I chose the same career path as you, not for any gallant or noble purpose, but to try to understand what you saw in being a police officer. I love you, Dad, and I understand now. Jerry and I have both been able to run the course and have retired. Thank you for being there as an example for us. Someday we WILL see each other. Love, your son, Ralph.

Dad, both of your sons have now retired from the career you started, but were unable to finish, because of the actions of a drunk driver. We were proud of you when we were young, and we like to believe we carried on what you started before your life was taken from you in the line of duty. Semper Fi Dad. Life has come full circle. We love you. Jerry, Ralph, and Deanna.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 47th 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 who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.

I am sure you are proud of your sons continuing your tradition of protecting and serving.

I have worked with and for Officer Turre's son at the Corvallis Police Department for the past five years. Even though Sgt. Turre was only with his father for nine years it is obvious his dad passed down a work ethic and commitment to law enforcement that was second to none. The Sgt. Jerry Turre that I know, who has recently retired, was and is a credit to the Corvallis Police Department and this profession.

Rest in peace brother. And God Bless your 2 sons who have bravely served in a profession in which you believe in. Glad I found these reflections, made me proud to serve.

The reflection left by Sergeant Jerry Turre to his Father was so heartwarming. Although you may have never known him well, it is obvious that he left a legacy for his children to follow. To Officer Jerry Turre of the California Highway Patrol - Rest in Peace. And to the Brothers Turre "Be careful out there!"

Jerry was my father, who died when I was 9 years old. I never had the opportunity to know him well but I know his death, and his commitment to his profession, probably led me to where I am today. I wish I had had the opportunity to get to know him and to be able to share our experiences. My brother is also a police sergeant in Newport, Oregon. I think our father would be proud of the footsteps he left on the road for us.
