Reflections for Police Officer Samuel R. Wilson

It is amazing that it has been 30 years since that fateful night of you and your partner just doing your job only to end up in a struggle with a person.
Rest in peace.

Oh Sammy. Except for in my dreams, it's been so many years since I've seen your smiling face....our beautiful niece Kerri turned 30 this past weekend. Imagine that. How time has flown. I can't tell you how much I miss you. Every celebration the family has, there's always thoughts of you. Daddy needs you. Please hold his hand. He is so weak. I think of you all the time. Although it's been years, the suddenness of your loss is still shocking. Although I know you are in a better place, sometimes I cry like you just left us yesterday. Keep waling with the kids, keep protecting them. I love you and miss you with all my heart. Love your baby sister, Linda

Hey Sammy,

I didn't know about this site. I am at work (still at the Secaucus Police Department) and I was thinking of you as I often do. Even after all these years, it hurts as if you left us yesterday. I miss you and Mommy and Kayley so much, but I picture you all together. I love you Sammy and I wish Matt and Eric could have known you better. I have been using your name as one of my passwords for work so I always think of you everyday.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 23rd 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 who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.

I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Hey Sam,
On August 1, 2010, several of your classmates retired and I wish you were still here to decide if 25 years were enough for you too. You were cruelly taken away, far too soon, from those who loved you and worked with you over 21 years ago. As one of your classmates from the JCPD Academy Class # 51, I just wanted to say you are not forgotten and are still remembered.
'Til we meet again,
Tom Bell

Sammy; We worked together at Fra-Tex, Sid Karp Co. and for the JCPD. We always managed to look out for each other and I will never forget the good times that we had. Especially screwing everyone up by signing everything S.R.Wilson. Your nephew Stephen T.Wilson-JCPD just finished pedaling his bicycle to Washington DC in your honor. You would be very proud of both him and your nephew Mathew Kilroy-JCPD for they have followed in our footsteps and wear the uniform proudly. We now have to look over them and keep them safe. I really miss you Sam, my little big brother both in life and on the job. I wish that my son was riding down to Washington to see you and not just your name on a memorial wall. Everyone in the family misses you. I guess that the next job that we work together will be for God. Until that time, just know that I love you.

At your funeral mass Father Pagnotta said that the angel of death came like a theft in the night. I'll never forget those words or the tears throughout my house the night it happened. You are still sorely missed and believe me never forgotten. I did't know that this memorial site existed. I was thinking of you so much today as I sat here and cried for the family of Detective DiNardo. Say hello to my Mom and give her a kiss for me and Kathleen too. CMC

Sammy:

From Sid Karps and Vallies' across the street, to Sharons house in Paramus, there's lots of fond memories. Sorry you didn't have more time to enjoy life. I believe you enjoyed what you did have, just like the rest of us. And thank you for your service.
