Reflections for Sergeant Joseph Daniel Bock

Uncle Joe Dan, I remember you were my first love, my hero. When you were home on leave I would sit in your lap for hours. Only six at the time and I remember it like it was yesterday. It's hard to believe it's been 34 years this year. You touched many hearts and influenced so many lives. Give mom and Laurie a hug for me. I miss you all so deeply.

Its Memorial Day 2020. I just learned last night of your burial site in Boardman where I am a police officer. I went to visit your gravesite today. I have read comments on here as well as other places. I have been touched emotionally by how much you impacted peoples lives. You left a great legacy. I know there used to be some type of service for you here. Just to let you and your family know, I will make sure we as a department will continue to honor you.

Would love to have his family members contact me at our Police Station number if possible.

I worked at Shipley donuts off of Everhart and SPID. I was 22 years old. Officer Bock came in almost every morning. I loved seeing him come in. He always would say something to make me laugh.
It broke my heart when he was killed. I think about him often.

J D was more than my friend , he was like my Big Brother. I will never forget that phone call the early morning, how empty a feeling I had. J D was special. He was funny and silly, but serious and a real friend. I miss him very much still. He was a great father and I learn a thing or two from him. I’m still angry

Just a civilian who remembers this day well. I was 18 years old driving toward Corpus from Bishop via Chapman Ranch with my boyfriend. I remember being run off the road in my Trans Am by a vehicle and then moments later several police cars in pursuit who I also had to yield the road to. Then I continued on my way and went to my classes. Later that day on the news I learned of Sgt Bock's death.

When I heard of his killer's sentence being commuted in 2004 because of mental illness I was in disbelief.

Through the years Sgt Bock's children have crossed my mind and I say a prayer for them.

I pray that whatever parole board comes upon his killers case that they have the sense to keep that criminal locked up forever.

I wish when I was that 18 year old girl that I would have been savvy enough to come forth as a witness to the killer's get away run.

RIP Sgt Bock

As it approaches that horrible day we lost you, I miss you Brother, thinking about stories we could have told on each other, stories and guidance we could have shared with our kids and now grandkids. Know that you are not forgotten and you do live on in our hearts.

It has been a long 30 years since you left for Heaven. Things have never been the same for all who knew you. I just wanted to drop by and let you know high above, we still miss you, and honor you. What a good man you were, a great Dad, and a true friend. I know the Angels in Heaven still sing with joy and glory. Until we all meet again in that beautiful Paradise, keep watch on us down here, and we will think of you each time we look up into the skies.....Rest In Peace JD (110 Is Eternally 10-42)

I think about my Older Brother, as I would call him offer. Dan was not just my friend but attacked like my older brother. There was no better friend, a good father, funny at times, but serious when we needed it. Really miss being able to talk to you about things. With all my respect and love Brother..

I only knew JD casually through his best friend and fellow officer JR....but he was so damn funny always smiling and just a cool dude. I'm not thrilled to read that this la cucarucha that shot him won't fry but it doesn't tarnish how much a guy in a uniform made me, a recent ex con, smile every time he walked into Hi Tech Audio Video where JR had a second business and office and I worked...just wanted those who care for him to know he truly is remembered....and by someone who made his own mistakes.

Dan: Each year, I mourn your loss on that terrible day. You were an awesome officer, a good friend, and a great dad to your girls. I remember you telling me that you had baked cookies for the PTA. You have never been forgotten by anyone who knew you. Although I later went back into Law Enforcement, at the time - I couldn't wrap my head around the fact that you (of all people) had lost your life. I turned my notice of resignation in and left two weeks later. Knowing you - you would have said that I should have just taken a vacation! I still miss your sense of humor.

JD, I have never forgotten this day 28 years ago. There has never been another like you. We still miss you today, as much as yesterday. We will all meet again on Heavens Plain, and I look forward hearing your funny jokes again. Till then, thank you for being a great Dad, Friend, and Police Officer. You sure left a positive mark on so many peoples lives.

Rest In Peace 110

For many years I have thought about that terrible day. You were a wonderful neighbor, mentor, and confidant. You provided support to my mother and her troubled family. Your daughters were my older friends, and in your way, you were a positive male role model in my life. I will never forget when the girls snuck in your room and threw grape stems on you as you slept. I never laughed so hard, and you were the ultimate practical joker. I won't forget the neighborhood BBQs and the peace we all had knowing you were watching out for us.

You were a wonderful human being. All through my young years, my prayers at night included, "I love you good night, JD." Every once in a while, I still say it to honor my hero.

You will never know just how much you impacted my life.
