Reflections for Police Officer Keith Alan Dees

Dear Keith,
Twenty years ago tonight, the world stopped, completely stopped! I look back and it seems so long ago, yet it feels like yesterday when one simple word changed the meaning and direction of life, for so many who loved you ......that word was "Hello".

The years have past, but your memory is very much alive, each and every day in conversations and in our hearts.

I love you and miss you every day,

Deborah Dees

Dear Keith,
Today, 14 years ago, our lives changed forever; you were called home to heaven and we were left to pick up the pieces. Although the road has been rocky at times; faith has restored our hearts and daily reminders of what we shared are present everyday.

Our memories we shared will forever be in my heart and you will be too!

I miss you and love you forever,

Deborah Dees

keith, I want you to know that your accident still haunts me after all these years. I was the first unit on the scene, I called for an ambulance and life flight, They both arrived at the same time. The decision was made for the Ambulance to take you as life Flight hovered over head. I escorted the ambulance to Ben Taub, Mike Navarro and I prayed together at the hospital for you. Rest assured everyone involved did every thing in there power to try to save you. Sorry there wasn't more we could have done.. Rest in Peace brother..

Kieth was my childhood hero, like a fun older brother. We always stayed friends through the years. keith never forgot anyone or the importance of people, family, or friendships. I miss our short lunches and talks on the phone or at steak & ale just to catch up on what was going on in our lives. It's now been years, but i still feel the loss of this man's spirit & humor. Kieth, you are still missed & appreciated by all. It's nice to have found this site when you crossed my mind today. 4-25-14

I was saddened when I saw this site, but his name hits close to home. I have 3 children and reading some of the reflections made me think of my own kids. Thank you for your service and the reminder of what is important in life.

I remember Keith, Jeff D. and Cliff S. used to stop at LSI to cool off, or wash their bikes between funeral escorts. Keith and Jeff almost always came together and they'd joke on each other. Keith was always laughing and he'd make all of us laugh. When Keith showed up, I'd make it a point to see what he had for us that day. He was fun to be around. I'm very sorry for his family and friends.

It has been a while. However, I believe Officer Dees was in the same academy class with Officer Blando. Was Officer Dees a former Marine? Both good family men as with many others from HPD. It is very strange to see they did not live to retire. Hard to accept working with them and remebering how young and dedicated we all were. The list for HPD is growing too fast. Some deaths were destined to happen. Some as a result of violating a law that did not have to happen. Just remeber your training and know it could be you. No day on duty is the same even if you are doing the same thing ever day.

May the cop killers who beat the rap roast in hell because there you have no defense-just the truth that you did it and now must pay for eternity!!
