The loss of an Officer is never easy to deal with, your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

My prayers go to your family, and your fellow LAPD Officers.

I have been with LAPD SWAT for the past 12 yrs. Officer Simmons was like a big brother to me as well as a mentor. He spent 20 yrs with SWAT and his work ethic and leadership as a team leader was second to none. Officer Simmons was no ordinary 51 yr old! He had the body of a 30 yr old and looked like he should have still been on the football field! Officer Simmons also spent countless hours of his own time to help kids in his community and organized toy drives for kids at orthopedic hospital in Los Angeles during Christmas time. It has been a true pleasure to work with and know(Randy). God bless his soul and my prayers are with his Family at this very difficult time.

Many tender memories soften your grief,
May fond recollection bring you relief,
And may you find comfort and peace in the thought
Of the joy that knowing your loved one brought...
For time and space can never divide
Or keep your loved one from your side
When memory paints in colors true
The happy hours that belonged to you.
~ Helen Steiner Rice

A hero, a family man and a man of God. You are the embodiment of all things good. May your family find comfort in cherished memories and in the arms of those who care. God Bless you all. Thank you for your commitment to protect and serve.
