Tony Michael Lumley

Trooper Tony Lumley died as a result of injuries sustained the previous night when his patrol car collided with a vehicle being pursued by other law enforcement agencies.

The pursuit started in Clayton County, and proceeded through Henry County into Spalding County, where Trooper Lumley joined in. The pursuit ended when the suspect's vehicle crashed into Trooper Lumley's vehicle on Georgia 16. The suspect was taken into custody and transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Trooper Lumley was flown to Grady Memorial Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries the following morning.

The suspect pleaded guilty to armed robbery, carjacking, and murder in connection with Trooper Lumley's death. He was sentenced to life in prison, but will be eligible for parole.

Trooper Lumley had served with the Georgia State Patrol for 2.5 years, and was assigned to the Griffin Post. He is survived by his wife, two daughters, parents, and brother.

In 2009 the Georgia Legislature renamed Georgia Highway 18, in Pike County, after Tony Lumley in honor of his service.

I can’t believe it’s been 15 years. I have missed you so much. I have so many great memories of growing up with you. All the fun times our girls had when they were little. You could make me laugh and mad and the same time. We had so many great trips together with our families. So many great summers. I will never forget that night when Mike called me. It was one of the worst nights of my life. I love you with all my heart. Things have never been the same without you. I know you, your mom and dad are enjoying being together again. I will never forget you. Tammy
