Chris was a terrific teammate and very special member of our Wayne State University Championship Baseball Team!!! I just learned about this tragic incident today at Prime Motorz when I noticed their sponsorship in an annual memorial golf tournament in Chris's honor. My sincerest belated condolences to Chris's family...Rest In Peace and May Your Memory Be Blessed Sergeant Chris Wouters... Respectfully, Steven Silverstein

Chris was an outstanding example of a law enforcement officer. We tried one of his last cases together and he was the ultimate professional. The City of Warren has never been the same since his passing. Chris was a true American hero.

I think of Chris often and reflect on his kindness and gentleness. I remember how he spoke of his family and how much he loved them. Such a tragic loss of a fine man.

I was just sitting here talking with my mother. Officer Wouters severed with my dad, Gerald Gidner. They both now rest in heaven. I remember my dad getting the call, it was on his birthday.
The men and women of law enforcement are in my thoughts and prayers everyday, those that go out everyday and those who are fallen and not forgotten.

I was a young officer in Livonia when Chris was killed. I am now a Sgt. with my department and in charge of a training unit. I tell Chris's story to my trainees all time about the importance of searching and accountability. I hope his story will keep my young officers ever vigilant during searches.

Dear Chris,

Your Dad has joined you in Heaven. While we on Earth will miss him, I’m sure he is so happy to be with you. After our daughter was killed, your Dad and Mom were there for us. During the six years plus years, we have been fortunate enough to develop a wonderful friendship. All of us in MI-COPS will miss him tremendously.

God speed Brother....
