Reflections for Sergeant Kevin Dale Cox

How has it been 21 years already since Kevin was taken away from us. The days pass, the months pass, and the years pass but the sadness will never pass. Think of you always and miss you more then you will ever know.

There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of Kevin, his sisters, and his parents. I have wonderful and beautiful fond memories of Aberdeen and Kevin and Michael sitting on the Coxs' roof. There was trick or treating with both of our large families. Then there were to days at West Texas State with Karen.

I regret that Kevin lived so close to us in Lubbock and it was not until after his death, I knew how close he was. There is so much we could have shared with each other's families. We will get our chance again when we meet up in heaven.

Thank you Ernie, Freida, Kevin, Karen, Kristi, and the rest of the family for beautiful memories that have lasted a life time. My heart still aches at the huge void in our lives.

The past couple of days have been bittersweet. Kevins daughter Heather gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. While i am so happy for Heather and Brice and to become a great aunt for the first time, i feel the tears start to flow as i know how proud kevin would be right now and just be on cloud 9 on becoming a grandpa. I just know he will continue to watch down on them from up above and i hope my beautiful great neice grows up knowing just how wonderful her grandpa was.

6 years have gone by since I last looked at this page. I am deeply touched that others have since left their messages on this page about Kevin. Almost 15 years have passed since the day we lost him. I think about him everyday as I know my whole family does as well. He is loved and missed so very much .

It has now been over 12 years since that horrible Friday 13th. As one of the tactical medics tasked with keeping our guys safe and taking care of them, there is not a day that goes by that I do not think about that horrible day! I still remember Kevin's "full of life" smile, I still remember all his words of encouragement and guidance, and I still look at a specific picture of him standing guard over one of our medics as we provided care for an injured child on a call-out 2 weeks prior to his death. I take peace in knowing Kevin is in a better place, he is eternally happy and safe. Let us all never forget the sacrifice made by many, let us all work daily to keep more names off the wall, and let us all never forget Sgt. Kevin Cox's contributions to this world while he was here with us!

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 12th anniversary year 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 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 that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Thanks to your family for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections.

I knew Kevin before I was hired onto the Lubbock Police Department. I was with the L.P.D. from 1989 until 2008. Kevin was a great man and an amazing police officer. I was on the swat team with Kevin for several years and learned so much from him, not just about being an officer but about being a person. He was a incredible person as an officer and in his personal life. I was there the day he died and miss him. I guess I will never understand what happened that day and have never delt with it and probably never will. Kevin died doing what he loved and with officers that loved and respected him.

Today is July 13th, 2011. It has been ten long years since Kevin died. I will never forget that day. Kevin and I attended SWAT school together. He was always smiling and joking around. He was truly a good guy. I wish more police officers were like Kevin was. Best wishes to his family.

I was blessed to have worked with Kevin for almost 10 years before his death. Kevin was a joy to work with, not only because he was one of the best Police Officers I worked with but because he was such a strong Christian Man. I will never forget the night we both were at an RA church camp in Floydada with our sons who happened to be the same age. That night at the bonfire service an invitation was given and several young men gave their hearts to Christ. They asked for assistance because of the number of boys coming forward and guess who was the first father to volunteer to help: Kevin Cox. He did so much for the Lord in such a short time. Can't wait to see you in Heaven Kevin (hey that rhymes), after I visit with Jesus of course!

Attended the fallen officer's memorial service today. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you and the life you lived. You loved God,your family,and everyone around you, and brightned the day with your smile and that laugh which I will never forget. You gave your life doing what you loved, serving and protecting your community. As Judge Sam Medina spoke today, this day does not have to be a sad day, but a day of celebration of your life for what you gave, sacrified, and died for...you became a giant. May God bless and keep you and your family. We love you!

I hadn't been on this site in a while, and thought i would look at it today. Of course the tears started flowing, even though I had read the reflections many times before. It's been so many years since Kevin has been gone, but yet still feels like yesterday when , in the matter of 2 short years, I buried my son, then my only brother. If only they could know somehow just how much i miss them. Today I am just feeling so sad.

May you rest in peace. Soon I hope to be apart of the same great organization of which you were once apart of and serve you and our lord as you did our community.

This happened 7 years ago, but your sacrifice is still precious to our memories. You brought honor and glory to your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and you made your family and your department proud. You served well. Most police officers think they will go to heaven when they die because they are "good", but it is so much better to know that you know where you will be for all eternity. We have Jesus to thank for that. God be with your families and all who loved you and may the Lord continue to show them His grace,
peace and salvation.
