Evan, it still doesn't seem possible that I won't be seeing MHP330 rolling into the driveway next door after another day of serving and protecting the citizens of Montana. As a former member of law enforcement myself, I always feel a loss when a brother makes the ultimate sacrifice but your passing has really hit me hard. You were one of the most genuine, caring, kind, intelligent and talented men I've ever known. I felt fortunate to know you and have you as a neighbor.

I know you're watching over Carrie now and I hope you know that Jean and I will always be there for Carrie and will help her in any way we can.

Rest in peace, Trooper Schneider, and enjoy your well-deserved reward. You will never be forgotten.

It is hard to believe it has happened again in such a short time. Evan thank you for protecting us and making our streets safer. Carrie have some comfort in the fact he is not alone, David and all the other officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice will be watching out for him. Everyone who was close to Carrie and Evan have comfort in the fact that you are not alone either. We have a great family with the patrol, a great community, and we have each other. Someday you will meet with him again, until then Evan rest in peace, and Carrie you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Trooper Evan F. Schneider,

Not all our threats to a trooper's life and limb manifest themselves in human form with specific intent on bringing him/her harm. To those of us that patrol the highways the motor vehicle sometimes brings us injury and death without specific malice or intent. Just the same, it is an enemy that remains ever-present and deadly. No matter the caution and no matter the practice of driving skills it can strike any of us at any time. For one of us who wears the uniform and patrols the highways, if we die on duty, we are deemed a hero. For our sworn duty is keep others safe. It is our duty to direct, control and cite others for traffic violations. In the course of such duty the risks are great for we find ourselves on one of the most dangerous battlefields of all -- a United States highway. As we sometimes wade into the carnage of wrecks to bring aid to those who are claimed as casualties we find ourselves sometimes, too, among the fallen. Our creed is to be of service to anyone who is in need or distress. To lose one's life in fulfilling this creed is to have died for others. And, this alone makes one a hero. Well done, trooper...well done.
