Reflections for Police Officer Robert Winget

To the Winget Family,

I had the honor and privilege to work with Bob during his last years on LAPD. We had fun teaching on the "travelling tactics team" for Sergeant Frank Mika.

I received a call from our Employees Assistance Unit asking if I could attend a funeral for a former LAPD officer that retired in '92 and moved up to the Modesto area. I prayed the name would not be a familiar one...

When they confirmed it was indeed Bob Winget, my heart sank.

My sincerest condolences on the loss of Bob. I know I will never forget him!

Respectfully and sincerely,
Tere Akune, Sergeant
LAPD Pacific Division

PS-Don't worry about Bob...he is in GREAT company! God bless you, your family and the Ripon Police Department.

when I heard the tragic news ,I tried to remember if this was the same Officer Winget that taught traffic invs.at LAPD academy when I attended.but then i realized something else- the names always sound the same ,becuase the names of the ones we lose are always the same,and each time we lose a Brother or sister officer,it makes the world that much emptier and lonely.Try not to grieve painfully for this officer- he left us doing what he did best and I'm sure he was proud to be in uniform and "out there" looking out for us all...

Police Officer Robert Winget, your many years of service are an inspiration. May you rest now in Peace.

"The credit belongs to those people who are actually in the arena..who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions to a worthy cause; who at best, know the triumph of high achievement; and who at worst, fail while daring greatly, so that their place shal never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt
