Reflections for Constable John William Brown

Chief John Brown was one of my first Chiefs in the United States Coast Guard. He was a great leader, shipmate and friend. Service was in his DNA.

I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the second anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace today. Thanks to your friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.

Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as an LEO, but for our Country as well when you served in the USCG. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Semper Paratus!

Chief Brown was my first Chief in the Coast Guard way back in 1977 aboard USCGC GLACIER. He was a good Chief and a great role model. I thought of him often over the years and we traded a few emails last year.

RIP, Chief J. W. Brown

I come to the ODMP often to remember my late fiancé Dennis. Every time I come here it breaks my heart to know that yet another officer has fallen and that yet another family has to live their lives without the officer they loved. My heart goes out to everyone who knew and loved Constable Brown. Know that you are not alone in the "journey" that you walk. Should you ever need anything please don't hesitate to contact me. (The Davis Co. Sheriff's Office in Iowa will always know how to reach me. I can also be found on Face Book.) You will be in my thoughts.

From reading the reflections left for John, he sounds like he was a great man with a beautiful spirit. Those of you who knew him in life were so blessed to have been able to share in it. I hope that you will all continue to find a way to celebrate and remember John's life and the MAN that he was. Remember that John's life was about so much more than the way he died. John will continue to live on as long as we continue to remember him.

Constable Brown, thank you for helping to make this world a little safer for us all. YOU will not be forgotten. Please continue to watch over all of us as only you can. If you happen to bump into my late fiancé Dennis up there give him a big hug for me and the kids. It's been seven years and a half years but he's still very much missed and forever loved.

Wishing you brighter and better days,

Jocelyne :)

I am currently a deputy(33 years) and served with John on the Coast Guard Ship Northwind and we made 2 trips to Antarctica together. He was one of the best Boatswains Mates around. And could I tell some funny stories about him.
One of them made him a legend!
John,we will miss you and you will always be in our thoughts and prayers

To the family and friends of Constable John W. Brown and his fellow officers:

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when John tragically died.

To the Brown family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in the Bay Area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service John gave to his community and the citizens of Texas, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on April 10, 2010.
