Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Bruce Allen Williams

On behalf of the acting U.S. Attorney, Assistant U.S. Attorneys, and support staff for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, we honor law enforcement officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. During National Police Week the focus is even greater that we never forget the deputies and their families. Today, May 11th, 2021, we honor and remember you Deputy Williams. Rest in Peace.

I’m thankful for Bruce, and the impact he had on his younger brother, Deputy Mike Williams, who was my FTO. 15 years after Bruce’s murder, our deputies still remember that night. You were an impact player, Bruce, and Green County is a better place because of your service and love of the community, but you are sorely missed by so many.

So many years have passed and yet it seems still like yesterday. My life has taken lots of twists and turns but you still remain an encouragement, and I still introduce you to people through the stories I tell about you. The oddest things remind me of you. And sometimes I know you're looking out for me, making me better at my job. I miss you.

I see your 'bench memorial' every time we walk down to the Daychola lookout and my heart is always moved by your sacrifice. Today I wanted to know about you, so I did a little investigating. Thank you for serving your community with all you had - you truly are a hero who has laid down his life for another. I want your family to know that you are not forgotten. Someone new to the community (me!) has been moved by your story and I will pray for your family whenever we take that walk to your bench, which is quite often. May God bless and keep them close to His heart.

Listened to your funeral songs on the way home from work this morning. Lots of things have changed and been thrown at me in life. I have to say most things are for the positive. a big void though still remains with the sense of loss for you and your family for the years that were stolen that day.

you are still missed every day!!! Heroes live forever!!

Growing up in Green Lake County and getting to meet Bruce during a ride along while in college; now am a 12 year veteran myself got to see what an IDEAL Officer should be.

Bruce,

Eight years has brought about many changes for me both personally and professionally. I find telling others about you and the impact you had on my life as my therapy. Your ability to make the most stressful situations humorous has been placed onto my duty belt as a means to get safely through these calls.

The joys of the schedule this career brings forth will prevent me from making the memorial lunch. I will be celebrating a wedding this weekend of one of the officers I trained after your passing. I have a lot of respect for him in that he never met you, but still makes a point to treat all memorial events associated with your memory as a priority.

Well I will celebrate this day and grieve as I always do….you know that you are still missed EVERYDAY and HEROS LIVE FOREVER!!!!
