Rick.......just wanted you and your family to know I think about you often. You may have left us but know you will never be forgotten. After 30 years with the Fort Smith Police Department, I retired and now do contract work for ABF Freight Safety & Security Department. I work with one of your old friends..Roy Valentine. He is the son of the late Arkansas State Trooper Ross Valentine. Love and miss you my friend. You were the best and one of my heroes.. I may have mention to you that my son Jamie has been the Van Buren Police Chief for the past three years. He loves his new career and proud to say the city of Van Buren loves him. Rest In Peace and know someday you and I will reconnect.

It’s been 10 years since you left us but believe me you are thought of every day by someone in law enforcement. I personally think of you often and reflect on some of the conversations we had from time to time . Miss you Rick. By the way, Jamie is now the Chief of Police in Van Buren.

Though I had limited contact with Rick Lebow in the area of reconstruction, he was my Brother. He brought respect and admiration to the ranks that he led and honorable service and dedication to the Arkansas State Police. I can think of no more fitting memorial to Sergeant Lebow than to say to his family and friends; he did his best for you, and that was good. Damn good.

Rick Lebow worked for the Washington County Sheriff's Department Fayetteville Arkansas before he became an Arkansas State Police Officer. He was one of the happiest people I knew. Always had a big smile on his face. He was a professional and an all around great guy.

You were the best FTO I could have had. We had great times, vacations and long late night talks. Thank you for your example. Our shared Christian beliefs comfort me and your family and friends. I will see you when my time comes. Until we meet again my brother.

Rick, you are so missed. We honored you yesterday with a blood drive which I know you were so passionate about. So many lives will be helped by the donations that were gathered around the state in your memory so you are still helping others. We will meet again someday but until then, just know that you will never be forgotten.

“Band of Brothers”

"Whoever does not have the stomach for this fight, let him depart. Give him money to speed his departure, since we wish not to die in that man's company. Whoever lives past today and comes home safely will rouse himself every year on this day, show his neighbor his scars, and tell embellished stories of all their great feats of battle. These stories he will teach his son and from this day until the end of the world we shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; for whoever has shed his blood with me shall be my brother. And those men afraid to go will think themselves lesser men as they hear of how we fought and died together."
