Reflections for Patrol Officer John Kevin Lamm

Greater Love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13.
Kevin, it has been 20 years since you relieved me for the split shift we worked that day. If that call had come in 30 minutes earlier, I would have been there instead of you. I know that one day I will see you again at that great roll call above. God Bless You. God Bless your family.

Kevin every New Years Eve I start going into a funk leading up to New Years when you made the ultimate sacrifice. I miss you a lot and our talks in dispatch. Someday we will meet again.

19 years ago today, probably right about now. I just finished my shift and found myself in deep reflection. I just wanted to let you know I was thinking about you Kevin. The FPD radio was a little quiet tonight for NYE. AST was slower than usual too.

Officer Kevin Lamm served in my department 18 years ago and I honor his service and ultimate sacrifice whenever I provide commentary on my weekly radio show and many other occasions.

I certainly echo what Kevin's mother stated elsewhere on this website about asking Chief Alvin Miller of Fairbanks (who also lost his life in Fairbanks in 1908) to serve as an "usher" for Kevin upon his entering Heaven. (Her words bring tears to my eyes.)

Officer Lamm, thank you for your service to our great city and the law enforcement profession!

I pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers.

I also Pray that the hounds of hell forever gnaw at the flesh of your murderer.

Thinking of you today, not unlike yesterday or tomorrow, but we mark another year of you taken from us. And still no word or words convey the loss 18 years later. God I miss you.

My husband, Alaska State Trooper, Scott Johnson was called out this day with the S.E.R.T team to respond. I immediately turned on the scanner to listen to the radio traffic. The team made entry and found Kevin and got him into the ambulance. All EMT's were assisting with Kevin and Scott had to drive the ambulance to the hospital. The visual images my husband Scott shared with me are vivid till this day. It was a huge reality check and deeply shook me as well as Scott. Little did I know that Scott too would be killed in the line of duty 16 years later. I won't ever forget Kevin.

When I was 13 (1993) my friend & I were stealing food from Kmart. We were hungry. Officer Lamm responded. He took us to Burger King in the back of his patrol car & dropped us off at home. He treated us like humans. I never forgot that. Years later, working at FMH, I saw a plaque in his memory in the ER. I think about him often. That was over 20yrs ago & just one small encounter & I still remember his good nature & spirit.

Hey Kevin! I just watched this year's 27th annual Police Memorial from D.C.. As you know two names were added to the wall from Alaska. These losses home for me, as all in the line of duty deaths do. For reasons I cannot explain here one of these hit especially hard. I can say you contiue to enrich and bless my life from where ever it is you are, for that my friend I am eternally grateful. I hope Ive made you proud with the gift of time Ive been given. Love you. I'll be there at roll call as they read your name this Friday.

So many more officers have been added to this page. It really is unbelievable, the world we live in now. The war on cops is at an all time high and I must selfishly say, I'm glad I'm retired. God has a plan. One day we will all understand the why's. I miss you all the time Kev. You are never forgotten. Our blue lights stay on for all of the fallen, you in particular. Rest easy...can't wait to see you again!

You pulled me over to discuss an equiptment issue. It was my birthday. You wished me a happy birthday. Just a short time later you gave your life. I knew your father. Every year on that date I thank you and your family for the service and the sacrifice.

Wow... 17 years. Where does the time go?
I remember that house, I remember falling on the floor when I saw the paper (that's how I first knew), Lacy had tears in her eyes as she handed it to me. We had just seen you not 12 hours earlier at the fire, smiling... and you were gone. Service at Lathrop, procession to the dam, I stood at the weigh scales lot and saluted as you and all of those honoring you passed by. Guns and Taps at the dam, hugs and handshakes... and we go on.

Now Scotty's up there with you, Gabe too. He was only 26 like you; he had a little one, too. Although your son was older when you died then Gabe's son was. It's been a LONG year for us but we still think of you and miss you.
Please keep watching over us as we go. Thanks brother.

I have had the honor to have worked with Kevin's father Lynn when we where police officers in the same agency in the mid 70's. I could not have had a better mentor and now having read this about Kevin, I must say while I feel great sadness for the Lamm family, I am not at all surprised by Kevin's actions on that fateful day for it hit me hard, having worked with his father, that the apple truly did not fall far from the tree. In fact, I am very proud of Kevin.

Hey Uncle Kevin,
I am doing an essay at school on who I admire and why. I'm going to write about you, cause you are the definition of a hero. I was only two years old when you were killed, so I don't remember you that much, but from what everyone says about you, you were the greatest guy in the world. I wish that I could have been able to get to know you better, but I know you are in a better place, and watching over all of us down here.
RIP Uncle Kevin. You are loved and missed.

May you RIP my son.
