Reflections for Patrolman Arthur J. Sullivan

Arthur Sullivan was my maternal grandmother's father. Though she has passed, she cherished his memory and often told her grandchildren of his service and life; as well as regularly donated to CPD and local police departments. His wife, Katherine, was deeply loved by her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
From what I know of his life was that he was originally from Saint Paul, MN and had hopes of joining the F.B.I..
It is nice to see other's still honor his service. Thank you.

At least the cowardly person (Shuster) who committed this crime was brought to justice and got to receive his just reward (execution) on this earth, and the judgment of his maker after his death. Patrolman Sullivan's children - if they are still living - would be about my age (75-80). Patolman Sullivan was a brave man and fulfilled his duty - it did not matter that he was already off-duty. I grew up in Chicago and still love the city even though I now reside in Virginia. Chicago policemen like officer Sullivan lay their life on the line every day protecting the citizenry; it is appreciated.

It was an honor to read your name among the 567 heroes of the Chicago Police Department during last night's Candlelight Vigil at Gold Star Families and Memorial Park. Your service, and your family's sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 75th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never dimishes respect, not even 75 years.

Rest In Peace
