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.

One of those days where it is hitting a little different. Thinking about you, about Mom. Remembering Mother's Day buffet every year - Crab Legs and Benedryl. Still waiting... Waiting for it gets better with time. It does NOT. Just different - never better. Hug Mom for Mother's Day and watch over us here. I know, just like me you have a smile larger than life watching our babies be Mommies. The more they grow in motherhood, the more they feel what the grands are missing. And I feel it right along with them. How different their lives would be having had you here. I won't say having known you because they do. In such a big way. And they love you dearly. School papers and family stories shared about this hero who lives in their hearts. It melts mine every single time. They miss you, I miss you. More as time passes and I know new milestones are approaching. Hits like a ton of bricks sometimes and then sometimes I sit back and listen.... The little's talk like they have had time with you and in some strange way I know they have. I always knew you held them before we did. And our girls. As they watch their own grow they remember a time when they were the same age. A time when you were still here. Seems like an eternity ago and then sometimes.... honestly it is like you were just here. Because we hold you so close. Love you so fiercely... And that no amount of time can change, diminish or replace. Always, Forever and then some in our hearts. Missing you today, tomorrow and always <3.
