Reflections for Police Officer J. Christopher Kilcullen

Chris was a great friend, i lived right next door to his mom and can remember when my brothers and i were using his basketball hoop during summer break, and the hoop broke. Chris came out, fixed the hoop, then looked at me( I was the smallest kid there,) and said hey britt dont hit the board ao hard next time. He continued the cool, calm good nature into all aspects of life. Our family will miss him dearly.

There is no waste in noble sacrifice there is only pain in loss. The honorable will awaken in hope and exist in peace. My heart cries for the children and for his lovely wife may the healing touch of God brush their faces with love.

Chris,

I know you are not here to read this. I just wanted to thank you for being such a nice friend to our son Tyler. We met you through him and enjoyed running into you here and there.

I got to see you often at Duck games and at the deli in the building where I work and enjoyed our conversations. I will miss you my friend.

I attended a couple of trainings with Officer Kilculen in the past few years. I thought he was an awesome guy and went to lunch with him several times during the trainings. I found in the short periods of time that I was around him, that everything people are saying about his outgoing personality is true. So much so, he is the only persons name I could remember out of 30+ other officers at the training. RIP brother and thanks for your service.

Thank you for your sacrifice....you will not be forgotten! It takes a special man/woman to become a law enforcement officer and to serve without thanks, acknowledgement or appreciation.....God Bless your Family and Department.

Officer Kilcullen, thank you for your dedication and sacrifice. You, along with so many are heroes to us all and we can't thank you enough. You can rest knowing the suspect is in custody; however, this is definitely no means to an end as we all know. Prayers go out to your family as they mourn and cope with your absence. You are forever in our hearts and minds. Thank you again, good sir, for laying down your life.

It is those who put their life on the line for strangers every day who are heros. A hero is what he was and nothing less than a blessing from God. Thoughts and prayers are with your family. RIP brother as you will always be remembered as a hero and never forgotten.

Chris always had a smile on his face and was the kindest, gentlest biggest teddy bear of a man. In high school, I went with him and a few friends on some outings and I have such fond memories. I know he will be missed by so many. His wife must be very special and I pray for comfort and strength for her and the girls.

Chris,

I can't believe you are gone. You were my first field training officer when I came to the Eugene Police Department. I can't even find words to describe what a great loss we are suffering now that you are gone. I found this poem many years ago and it is fitting that I share it here. May God bless you and offer his peace and love to your family as they grieve with your brothers and sisters in law enforcement.

Tears of a Cop

I have been where you fear to go...
I have seen what you fear to see...
I have done what you fear to do...
All these things I've done for you.

I am the one you lean upon...
The one you cast your scorn upon...
The one you bring your troubles to...
All these people I've been for you.

The one you ask to stand apart...
The one you feel should have no heart...
The one you call the man in blue...
But I am human just like you.

And through the years I've come to see...
That I'm not what you ask of me...
So take this badge and take this gun...
Will you take it? Will anyone?

And when you watch a person die...
And hear a battered baby cry...
Then so you think that you can be
All those things you ask of me...?
