Reflections for Sergeant Sean McNamee Gannon


I thought of you tonight when I drove by your house while on patrol. It's hard to believe that nine months have passed so quickly. Thank you for your service. Please watch over your Cape Cod brothers as you rest in peace with the savior Jesus Christ.

for Sean,


He did not expect death that day,
Nor seek what renown came behind.
Just, our fears he toiled to allay —
True and Strong upon the thin blue line.

I hope that everyone can find comfort in Revelation 21:4 where it says, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Until we see him again in Paradise, please accept my condolences.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Sean was killed in the line of duty.

To the Gannon family, fellow officers, and all who call Sean beloved, 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 our 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. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you. In reading the many reflections left for you, I can see what an impact you made on so many people.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Sgt. Gannon gave to his community and the citizens of Massachusetts and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on April 12, 2018.

Deepest condolences to Dara , family, colleagues, and friends. K9 Handlers know that they are at higher risk than others. When someone needs help, they call the police. When the police need help, they call K9. We know what we are expected to do, but we do it because we have passion for what we do, regardless of the risk. We love our K9 partners, and we pray that neither of us will ever have to make that sacrifice, but we know that it could happen at any time.

Thank you Sean for serving your community. Godspeed.

Prayers to Nero for a full recovery, and I hope the department sees fit to allow the family to keep him. There could be no better place for him to be.

When you think of Cape Cod, you never once think of a well respected police department losing an officer. I knew Sergeant Gannon not only as being apart of the Blue family, but personally. Sean would always pull me aside if I was in the station, and have me help train his drug dog Thor. If I went in on a day he was working, the second I would walk in the door he would be saying hello, with a smile. If someone was having a bad day, Sean would always turn it into a good one. I can remember when I had a speech at Cape Cod Cares for our Cops, Sean told me to not make my speech until I saw him in the crowd, because he wanted to hear it! Sean was generous enough to drive me to school a number of times on the days my dad was working. Sgt. Gannon will be very missed by many people, including me. Rest easy buddy!

I am Sean's dispatcher. We both started Yarmouth Police together in 2010. Sean always wore a smile, and always asked if we, in Communications, needed anything. Sean was my buddy, and I tagged along on one of his training sessions with "Nero". I captured them both with my photography. I miss Sean everyday, and will always have a heavy heart knowing that he is not here with us. Thank you Sean for everything.... Watch over us all.

Deepest condolences to Family, Department and Friends. Visit the web site for a glimpse of the Glorious Reunions awaiting. All law enforcement men and women indeed qualify as "Foxhole Christians" with their duty dangers. As Ray Comfort at says "Passing is the doormat they wipe their feet on before entering Heaven.” It is our belief they will hear from the Lord Himself. “Do not fear. for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom” (Luke 12:12).
