Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Police Officer Guy P. Gaddis

Sometimes you get the bad guy and sometimes he
gets you.
The shot that killed you also killed a part of us.
It killed a part of your family, both at work and at home.
It killed your dreams, your hopes, your future.
But it must not kill our determination to make this
world a better place or our will to make a difference.
America's streets must be running red with blood with
all the deaths of leos. Every time I come here to leave
a reflection, I feel like my words get emptier and emptier. I am truly sorry for your loss...a loss too great
for words. A character like you will never be forgotten!

I remember my husband every single day of my life, when I look into the beautiful brown eyes of our daughter Stephanie. I am now married to another wonderful man, but I will always feel blessed just knowing he left me and his family a wonderful gift..a daughter.Thank you all for never letting his memory be forgotten..he truly was and will always be an angel who watches over us every single day.

My platoonmate, my driver, my pal. You were the deffinition of 'friend'. No one was more loyal, no one was funnier, no one was more of a character than you. From McRibs and Dr. Peppers to midnight raids of the mess tent in the Saudi desert to 'give the troops a little boost', nothing was beyond you. Being your the best man at your wedding was an honor I'll never forget. You are missed more than I can tell you. Rest in peace my brother.

I too served with Guy at Fort Bliss, Texas. He was a good soldier, policeman, and friend; but when I think of Guy I remember him as a great person whom you could expect to have a good laugh with whenever he was present. He showed everyone how to enjoy life. Rest in Peace my friend.

We have not forgotten you and never will. Thank you for being a part of our lives. God bless you and your family.

I knew gaddis when we served together in the 978th M.P. company. Guy was an absolute hoot. He always had a smile.
he kept the arms room in order and even hooked some of us up from time to time with various requests. I too will make sure I search every dirtbag that I put in my squad.
Until we meet again at the roll call in the sky, may you rest in peace.

God bless, warrior. You lived and died a hero and will never be forgotten. We will continue the fight for you.

Deputy M. Moore
Warren County S.O. (OH)

I knew you all to well and miss you dearly. Even now most of what I do, is because of the promise that I made to your wife the day you where laid to rest. I remember it like yesterday and still weep just thinking about it today. I'm just letting you know that I am on my way to becoming a police officer and think about you when I have a big test (penal code, code of criminal procedures) and you give me the strength to get through it. Guy P. Gaddis you are missed very much, but I will never forget you. I hope all officers will learn from your incident. Thank you :)

I never knew you, but I think about you on a nightly basis. Everytime I put a prisoner in the back seat I think about the pictures of the interior of your car and it helps me to remember to make sure I search the turds until I am sure they have no weapon. If nothing else brother, your sacrifice will ensure that no other officer is taken in the same cowardly way again. Thank you, Bro! Until we see finally meet in person on the streets of heaven.

Officer, Houston PD


Sleep well fallen brother and watch over the rest of us...your sacrifice will never be forgotten!
