Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Ronald Mark King

Our thoughts and prayers go out to This Officer, as well as the Family, Friends, Department and Community. I was served with the Douglas County Sheriff in Colorado before returning to Oregon.

This is a loss that will never be forgotten. Hours will turn into days, days turn into weeks, weeks into months and months into years but, the difference that these officers have made will last forever.

We lost Our Deputy Morris Taylor on September 14, 2002. When he joined the other Angels in Blue.

God Bless Our Law Enforcement Officers and Those Who Love Them.

Each day I try to read the ODMP. Today I read your story. Any officer who dies in the line of duty will always be remembered for his sacrifice. You died a hero. Rest in peace Deputy King.

Ron and I attended Motor school together. He always talked of how much he loved his girls. He was full of life and spoke of how much fun it was being a father. Nothing was more important to him than his daughters. God bless he and his family. Ron you will be missed, rest in peace.

God bless the family of Ronald Mark King. Just knowing that he served in law enforcement reflects his selflessness and call to duty. Your family is in our prayers.


Ron King to me was larger than life. You see he was the older guy that lived down the street. I had known him all my life...He was the coolest. He grew up and left our little oilfield camp and became a cop and so eventually I did to. I had not seen Ron or most of his family for 10 or 15 years before he was taken in the line of duty. He did not know that I had followed in those footsteps that he was in part responsible for my law enforcement career. My prayer now is that he will watch over me as I continue to attempt to fill his shoes. As always every night my prayers go out to his brother's family, his sister his parents and his daughters. God Bless you all.
