I wanted to tell you that I know your family, in particular your three grandsons who have followed in your footsteps. They are all fine police officers and men. They are stand up cops that care for each other and their fellow officers. They keep your memory and service alive and are a credit to you and the profession. Your service did not end in 1968, it merely started a proud tradition in the Onka family.

A family friend and cop.

Chief Onka,
On today, the 37th anniversary of your death, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Sugar Creek. But one thing I can't understand is how your murderer only had to do 7 years in prison for murdering a police officer-when I read stuff like that, it just makes my blood boil.

Chief Onka,
Thank you for your service.
Rest in peace.
