Goelet Alessandro Carlo Beuf

Officer Beuf was killed when both he and a suspect were struck by a tractor-trailer while struggling on the side of a roadway at N. 24th Avenue and W. Lone Cactus Drive. Officer Beuf had responded to a call and was approaching a man when the man began to run. Officer Beuf chased the suspect and caught him on the side of a roadway. As the two struggled, they fell into the path of a slow-moving tractor-trailer.

The truck stopped, but Officer Beuf and the suspect were entangled in the front axle. Officer Beuf was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The suspect was critically injured in the accident. When he recovered he was sentenced to four years in prison and ordered to pay $9,000 in restitution for the death of Officer Beuf.

Officer Beuf was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the Phoenix Police Department for one year. He is survived by his wife and four children.

Papa in some weird way I feel that I am the person in the world that is the closest to you but also the farthest away. I feel that I have never met you but I carry you with me everywhere I go. Growing up I was always told how much like you I looked and how much like you I acted. I've always been told what you were like but I will never get to see it myself. I feel like I have never met you yet I feel so connected to you and I love you so much. It brings me pride and joy to see the impact you had on the lives of others.

To me you will always be my Papa, I may only have the idea of who you were but I will always strive to make you proud. I may only see the ideal of who you were but I hope to become as good of a man as you were. I only hope that I can love my Wife and my children as much as you loved yours.
