Reflections for Police Officer Gilbert T. Stocker

Officer Stocker,
On today, the 50th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the USMC as a member the 1st Marine Division. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

48 years ago today Tom. I've often wondered how you would have responded to events over the years. I remember babysitting while you and Dora went out. Would go into the bathroom to sneak a cigarette. Hahaha, you came downstairs the next day to tell me if I was going to smoke in the bathroom to be sure to eliminate the "evidence". I'd left ashes in the sink. You never ratted me out. What a guy!

Miss you every day.

I knew Gil From St. Rita High School. His passing left a huge loss in this world. Men of his caliber were and are rare, ask any of the officers that worked with him. Rest in Peace Brother.

Damn shame that the shooter got out after 9 years! Just purely wrong. This fine officer's life was worth more than 9 years. May he never be forgotten and I hope his wife and kids went on to find peace and future happiness after their horrible loss. You will never be forgotten hero.
