William Lynchburg Seuis

Officer Seuis was killed when his police motorcycle was struck by a tractor trailer on I-238 in Castro Valley. Officer Seuis was transported to a local hospital but succumbed to his injuries.

The tractor trailer fled the scene, but was stopped by a California Highway Patrol officer approximately 10 minutes later and the driver was arrested. The driver, an illegal alien, was charged with felony hit and run. A year later the charges were dismissed because of insufficient evidence.

Officer Seuis had served with the Oakland Police Department for 16 years. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.

I knew Willie before he was a Police Officer. We both worked at Long’s Drug Store in San Leandro. Later, we saw each other at college. He was going for a degree in criminal justice, while was just trying to get a degree in Liberal Arts. Later, we both ended up working for the City of Oakland. Willie worked in the OPD, and I worked in HR. I was horrified to hear of his death at such a tender age. I remember Willie as a bright, friendly man. He was beautiful. Really nice person.
