Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Kyle David Pagerly

Your heroism and service is honored today. 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. Rest In Peace

I pray for the solace of all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Thanks to your family and friends for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections.

To Kyle,

I really wish I could met you again and I will sooner or later. I will always remember you and your service. I will watch over your Mother and Father while you are away and make it known to the citizens of Berks County that you willingly put your life on the line knowing you could lose it all.

R.I.P Brother

Dear Kyle,
Though I haven't met you, I know your father, I started working with him 3 weeks ago. As a brother officer I mourn your loss and pray for your family. We will meet at a later time and patrol heavens streets together. God bless you, thank you for your service.

I came across this through a youtube video of Deputy Pagerly.. I am a Deputy Sheriff in Kenutcky, I did not know Kyle but through this website and and the videos for all to see his memory lives on. I am sorry for his families loss and his wife and child, along with all those who's life he entered. Deputy Pagerly is the reason I hang the thin blue stripe from a flag pole under the American flag on my farm. Rest in peace brother and may you live through all the K-9 Officers and fellow Deputies.

Kyle, I come to this site often to read all the great things your friends, co-workers and family write about you, I will never let that end, you are so missed and thought about all the time, I still expect you to come around the corner of my office door just to update me on whats going on. I miss your smile and so many of the times we had together and just chatting with you ,you were the best son any mom could have. I still can't write any of these without the tears flowing. Your daughter has a way all her own to make me smile, I look at her eyes and see you there, I'm waiting for the day she does something that brings you back to us through her. You can be so very proud of her and Alecia, you chose well. Your hard work with Jynx has paid off and again he just continues to make you proud.
Love you so very much

Thanks officer Pagerly for being a great human being. Your death is horrible and uncalled for, the thing that shot you didn't have the guts to kill himself but didn't need to kill you to get suicide by police. Why didn't he just shoot in the surrounding area? The sound of gun fire would have been enough, their is no reason you had to be killed. I live in IL and just happened across your story and my thoughts go out to you and your wife, your child and your dog.

Its been a year since Dan called me and said that you were shot and killed. My immediate response was, "Your shittin me". Quickly hit me that he was not kidding and that was a long night for many of us also. I know that you will never be forgotten, you will always touch many of us in small or big ways. I remember you relieving me with your newspaper, showing up in uniform ready to go. R.I.P. Kyle, many of us have it from here.

Hey Kyle,

I can't believe its been just about a year since I got that phone call that changed my career forever. It was all fun and games and although we all knew the dangers of the job, the reality of it all never really sank in until you were gone. Whenever get to work and I look to the right of my work station...not seeing your duty bag, coffee mug or other things there next to me still gives me that same, sick feeling all over and brings tears to my eyes. Then I look ahead to my bulletin where your picture hangs and I feel better knowing that even though you may be gone, you're still keeping an eye out for the rest of us. Your attitude and outlook on work and life is something I strive to mirror every single day. I think about you all the time and my thoughts and prayers continue to go out to Alecia, Savannah and the rest of your family. Rest easy brother, you are never forgotten!

Little Kyle,

Not sure how to even begin this. Coming up on a year and I still remember every second. We had " the talk" so many times, like I'm sure most partner's do. "Rather go MOC 3 with my hair on fire. Like a man then old in a rockin chair." Well sadly you beat me to it. I think of you everyday. Realizing if not for your brave act Hicks, Adam, Flick, and I wouldn't be here. I thank you everyday, and miss you. Its impossible to fill the emptiness. We spent more time breaking each others chops. Then we did our own families.

Its strange because whenever things get real. And its time to put in work now. I get a strange calm feeling. Like I know your right behind me. Having my back like you always did. Sometimes I catch myself actually looking and expecting to see you. But, your not there. Keep watching over guys. Even tho you probably need ladder to do so. Your missed every day, but I know when its my time. You'll be waiting with a pair of running shoes. A shitty grin and a high five......

" I get it you can run really far. But what are you gonna do when you catch them?"
" Hold on until you come tackle both of us."

When your time comes to die. Be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death. So that when their time comes they weep for time. So they can live their lives another way. Instead sing your death song. Die like a Hero going home.
You are a warrior and will forever be my hero.

It's almost been a year, Kyle and I still can't believe I'll never get to wake up next to you again. Some days my heart hurts so much I don't think I'll be able to breath. I thank God for blessing us with a pregnancy before your death. I wish so much that, just once, I could see you hold our daughter. I love you, Kyle, and I miss you more then I can say. I know you are with me in everything I do and you will ALWAYS be in my heart. Please keep watching over Savannah and your brothers in blue!

One of the saddest funerals I have ever attended. Sitting there watching Jynx and your devastated wife was almost more than I could take. When they awarded your dog the medal for valor, I couldn't hold back the tears anymore. Thanks for your sacrifice brother. You were more than a fellow police officer. You were also a brother firefighter. Rest in peace on the other side. Your influece and expertise will be sorely missed. God bless your family.

Rest in peace, brother. You will be missed. I was watching a tribute video for you and noticed the 200th MP patch on your sleeve in a few pictures; I'm also under the 200th. It's a shame to have lost such a great person who was obviosly dedicated to his community. I hope one day to have the pleasure of meeting you on the streets of heaven, until then, we have the watch.

Hey bro, cant believe its been 7 months. I was so happy to hear on the birth of your daughter. I keep your picture with Jynx on my refrigerator and look at it every time I leave for work with my K9 partner Cyrus. I think about you and what happened every time I go on a call. Its always on my mind.

Not that I have to tell you but your beautiful wife Alecia gave birth to your precious baby girl, Savannah. She has brought so many smiles and hope to your wife and mom. I cannot begin to tell you how much this little girl means to them and those who love her! Please keep watch over them from above and know that Jynx and Bentley have everything under control down below.
Love and miss you so much,

Kyle, your daughter has arrived and she is beautiful, but I think you already know that somehow. She smiles when Alecia mentions her daddy, I think you and Savannah know more they we know. Thank you so much for sending her here to us, she is a precious gift and we will look out for her for the rest of our lives. We are all waiting for her to do something that reminds us of you, you'll hear us when she does.
Love you, miss you and you are always in my heart forever

Thinking of you today Kyle.

6 months.... it feels like forever man.

We miss you.


December 28, 2011

I just wanted you to know that you are thought of each and every shift that we work, it is not the same here without you. We are doing our very best to finish everything you started and miss you terribly. I learned so much from you and wish that I could've told you what a great deputy, person and father that you were and would have been. I promise to let your soon to be born daughter know what a true hero and role model you were and will as long as I live carry on your work ethic and name in the best way that i am capable of. Rest In Peace my friend and brother.

I come to the ODMP often to remember my late fiance 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 Deputy Pagerly. 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 Kyle 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 Kyle's life and the MAN that he was. Remember that Kyle's life was about so much more than the way he died. Kyle will continue to live on as long as we continue to remember him.

Deputy Pagerly, 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 fiance Dennis up there give him a big hug for me and the kids. It's been eight & a half years and he's still very much missed and forever loved.

Wishing you brighter and better days,

Jocelyne :)

Pags, I try to write something every week but I never know what to put down in words because I feel like I have so much to say.

I want you to know that YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN BROTHER. Of course you know that I am always thinking about you and your family.

Together we went from 19 year old kids to seasoned war veterans and eventually both became police officers. From the days traveling all over the world dragging our gear, carrying our rifles across foreign lands, laughing countless hours together, and riding our motorcycles. We dodged mortars, bombs, and bullets together. We were forced to grow up fast but enjoyed every bit of it.

Most of all I want to say thank you for being such a great man and a great friend. You left your mark with all of us buddy! I couldn't imagine picking any words to describe you. For those that knew you, well, they know that they were truly blessed. We will always have the wonderful memories that you left behind and the comfort of knowing that one day we will meet again!!!
