CPl Cusack pulled me over within a week of me getting my drivers license in Lake Wylie, SC. He was super professional and gave me a rare break. I interacted with him many times over the next couple years as I worked at the local volunteer rescue squad. He was a great man and is greatly missed.

CPL. D. KEVIN CUSACK MARCH 13, 1965 - MARCH 27, 2010
A Big newspaper editor, sore because he got a speeding ticket,
tries to catch Sherriff Andy Taylor doing wrong.
The prosecuting witness turns out to be a witness for the defense
when Deputy Barney Fife tells the Court, "A good lawman don't go
so much by the book as he does by the heart."
Such seemed to be same with CPL. Kevin Cusack, right from the very start.
While this cop was a stickler for detail, and he didn't cut too much slack
He was fair and honest in his dealings, for this he received much respect back.
He thought the driving age was set too low, even while teaching his own to drive,
In twenty years he witnessed so many accidents, when kids didn't come home alive
His smoke grey cruiser of the Highway Partol glided down the SC 200 back road.
Temporary duty in Lancaster Co. now in the wee hours of the nght he drove.
Rain soaked shoulders, loose gravel, what made the cruiser tires slide?
For whatever reason the car overturned, now our beloved Warrior has died.
We stand around like sheep without a Shepherd, not knowing what to do next.
Just going through motions, memories flood like oceans, Time has slowed to ticks.
Our hearts go out to a mother and three kids, Our beloved one's life and joy,
Soon we will celebrate a life, that we are sure has gone on to glory.
So, what can we do to honor this Warrior, this Trooper who has cared so much for us?
You know all the slogans that makes a safe driver, just think of him as you react.
Drive safely and remember, the Trooper is your friend, a brother of CPL. Kevin CUSACK.

On behalf of our mother, my sisters, my brother and other Cusack family members...Please know that we deeply appreciate all of the messages, postings and many other deeds of kindness and support offered over the past year. Kevin made friends wherever he went, and it has been a blessing to us for you to share some of your thoughts and experiences with us through this site. Kevin read these postings and would forward messages to me to remember different officers and their families too. We have also seen the love and special relationships he shared with many of his fellow officers and other co-workers through postings here, and those relationships will always mean a lot to us too. Though we still do not understand God's ways, we are comforted by knowing He is still in control, and in Eternity - there will be no more parting. We will keep looking up, and strive to fulfill God's purpose for our lives as we feel Kevin did his best to fulfill his. God bless and keep you all. Romans 12:2

I come to the ODMP often to remember my late fiancé Dennis. Every time I come here it breaks my heart to know that yet another officer has fallen and that yet another family has to live their lives without the officer they loved. My heart goes out to everyone who knew and loved Corporal Cusack. Know that you are not alone in the "journey" that you walk. Should you ever need anything please don't hesitate to contact me. (The Davis Co. Sheriff's Office in Iowa will always know how to reach me. I can also be found on Face Book.) You will be in my thoughts.

From reading the reflections left for Kevin, he sounds like he was a great man with a beautiful spirit. Those of you who knew him in life were so blessed to have been able to share in it. I hope that you will all continue to find a way to celebrate and remember Kevin's life and the MAN that he was. Remember that Kevin's life was about so much more than the way he died. Kevin will continue to live on as long as we continue to remember him.

Corporal Cusack, thank you for helping to make this world a little safer for us all. YOU will not be forgotten. Please continue to watch over all of us as only you can. If you happen to bump into my late fiancé Dennis up there give him a big hug for me and the kids. It's been seven years and a half years but he's still very much missed and forever loved.

Wishing you brighter and better days,


Jocelyne :)

To the family and friends of Corporal Kevin Cusack and his fellow patrolmen:

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Kevin tragically died.

To Corporal Cusack's family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in the Bay Area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Kevin gave to his community and the citizens of South Carolina, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on March 27, 2010.
