I knew Trooper Larry Gleason and worked with his cousin Kate Updyke (Gleason) when I worked at the Hornell Police Department. I have known Larry since he was little. I remember all of us pulling for him to get accepted to the NYSP academy and then his graduating and being home this summer as a proud Trooper. Larry's death was senseless and a shock to the heart to the whole community. Trooper Gleason was a quiet, good, sincere young man who will never be forgotten. My deepest sympathy goes out to Larry's family. He will be missed greatly. RIP Larry, your death came to soon, but you're in a better place now.

To the family and friends of Trooper Gleason my sincerest sympathies and condolences. Another cowardly act that takes the life of a hero. May you find peace in the fact that he was doing what God called him to do, and he is with our Creator in a much better place.I never knew this site existed until a former co-worker (Billy Walls EOW 11-13-01) was shot and killed. I visit everyday and hope no more names are added, however, I realize there will always be evil, and it will always be the thin blue line responding...Thank you Trooper Gleason, rest now, your watch here is finished.

There is no pain greater than that of a mother who must bury her child. You wonder how your broken heart can go on beating. I know your pain! My precious son was only 29 when killed in the line of duty. I offer you my deepest sympathy, my prayers, and I hug you all with my heart.

Rest in peace, Trooper Gleason. Your watch is over now. May God bless your family and friends through this difficult time.


I hope this message of sympathy and prayer will help comfort the family and friends of a brave hero, Trooper Gleason. Officers in SC have suffered tremendously this year, as we have already lost four of our brothers to the evil of gunfire. Please know we are thinking about you and praying for you.....Blessed are the peacemakers, for they are the children of God. Be strong and the tears and pain shall lessen with each passing day.
Love and peace always for all my fellow law enforcement officers.


Thank you Tpr. Gleason for your service. You paid the ultimate price as so many have before you. I am going to be a trooper myself after college. I will keep you and your families in my prayers.
