Glen Alvin Gaspar

Officer Glen Gaspar was shot and killed while attempting to apprehend a suspect at a local ice cream store in the Kapolei Shopping Center at 590 Farrington Highway.

He and other officers were conducting a stakeout at a shopping center and observed the suspect enter the store. The officers had gone there with a warrant for the suspect's arrest, charging him with the attempted murder of two men during an incident that occurred one month earlier in the parking lot of the First Assembly of God church on Moanalua Road.

The 27-year-old suspect began to struggle when the officers attempted to arrest him. During the struggle, the man produced a handgun and opened fire, striking Officer Gaspar. Officer Gaspar was transported to St. Francis-West Medical Center where he succumbed to his wounds. Another officer was also wounded but survived. The suspect was apprehended at the scene. He was later found guilty of second-degree murder at the trial and subsequently sentenced to life in prison.

Officer Gaspar was assigned to the Career Criminal Unit and had served with the Honolulu Police Department for 12 years. He is survived by his two daughters.

20 Years… Every one of them another year too many without you. We continue to miss, love and honor you in everything we do. Our girls a constant reminder of your love and their babies with so much hope for futures built on a legacy you left behind. They know you… everything about you. They are proud of you are and all you stood for. We’ve spent the week watching home videos laughing, crying and aching to turn back the hands of time. Many say time heals but I beg to differ. The longing still finds a way to creep up when you least expect it. A special song, a memorable place… The girls and I have been sending your playlist back-and-forth to each other. Singing your favorites and retreating to memories that keep you near. The ones in a special place for each of us that belongs just to you. The only consolation being that someday we will see you again. And the blessing of so many beautiful people that have come into our lives along the way. Continue to watch over us, be near when we need you. We honor you always, miss you endlessly and love you forever ❤️
