On Peace Officer Memorial Day this year, your family will be attending a ceremony at the Police Hall of Fame and Museum in Titusville, FL. Their ceremony is very meaningful to me, Matthew, Tim and our extended family and friends. We always find your name on the "wall" there and spend a few moments holding you in our hearts. Your granddaughters will make a rubbing of your name to bring home with them. Next year, another grandchild will be with us! You live on in our hearts, our memories and the crazy stories we share about you. You were definitely one of a kind. You are deeply loved and sorely missed.

Jeez Kev, it's almost 15 years now? I haven't posted in a while, but I haven't forgotten. I still love telling stories about you and all of the guys in Fort Lee. The picture of you, Ira and me holding the fish catch in VT is still on my fridge.

I slide that pic under my St. Michael card before I go to officer's funerals but it goes right back to the fridge when I get home.

Take care buddy,

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 14th anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to leave a tribute to you. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service.

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

I pray for the solace for all those that love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Thanks to your family and friends for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections.

Kevin was one of the first kids I met in my neighborhood when I moved onto High Street in January 1962. He was a grade behind me in school, so, over the years we lost touch after I went to college and then moved to AZ. He surprised my bride and I when, in July 1989, he made an appearance in uniform at a secondary wedding reception we had in Bloomfield for my family & friends.

I will always remember Kevin for the good friend he was to me as a kid and, having read some of the other tributes, for the man I really did not have the honor of knowing.

The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Brother Greener,

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

You’re Brothers in Blue

Kevin was my second-cousin and I recall meeting him on just one occasion with his young family when I was visiting his parents in Bloomfield, N.J.
I found him to be a charming man with a wonderful family and was greatly saddened when I learnt of his tragic accident some years ago.

I met Kevin at the Essex County Range. We were both instructing. We spent a bit more than a week together with all the other range instructors. Qualifications, especially with recruits, in tails a certain amount of down time (waiting for reloads, etc.) In that time I remember listening to Kevin’s stories. Unfortunately, I don’t remember any of the stories. Nevertheless, I will always remember the “war stories” Kevin told and how I thought he was a squared away officer.
