Reflections for Trooper Tony Vian Radulescu

Trooper Tony, and I were in the Military together and he taught yso much about law enforcement. He was a wealth of knowledge and the funniest guy to be around. We spent time together at his parents house in New Jersey. Ate a delicious supper and returned to base. He will always be missed.

Dear Tony,
I think of you often and miss you dearly.
The roads, our community, and our neighborhood have never been the same.
We had snow AGAIN this year, and I really missed not seeing and sharing in you tearing up the snow on the four wheeler!
RIP my friend, and I hope there's snow up there from time to time!

Imi aduc aminte si acum cu 8 ani in urma cind am auzit la noutati ca un anumit state trooper in statul nostru a fost impuscat si ca a decedat. Cind au spus numele Radulescu am zis ca cu siguranta e roman de-al nostru. Am fost emotionat si mi-a fost mila tare. Am fost magulit ca asa un compatriot a ajuns sa cistige atita respect in comunitatea agentiilor locale de law enforcement. In vara urmatoare mergind cu motocicleta pe Hwy 16 m-am oprit la locul unde si-a dat viata. Ma umflat tristetea. Acuma nu departe de acest loc e un memorial ridicat de WASP.
Bravo, frate. Ai ajuns departe si din auzul altora care te-au cunoscut pricep ca ai fost un tip de treaba. Sa-ti fie tarina usoara.
Godspeed, Tony. You will be remembered in this state as someone who made the ultimate sacrifice. Respect.

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". 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.

Officer Radulescu was my close friend and Army Team member. I’m am so saddened to hear of his passing. He was a absolutely wonderful soul. He loved America and was so proud when he was accepted to the Washington State Patrol. I will always remember him.

I met Trooper Tony at a restaurant in Bremerton WASHINGTON when he saw my 63 Galaxie. His face lite up with this smile that was just amazing. I showed him my car and we talked for a good 30 minutes on cars and classics. Trooper Tony was just not a great Trooper but was a great person just to talk to. Very polite and was so positive in all his actions and what he loved and it was cars. When I heard about him being killed in the line of duty. We didn’t loose just a great WSP Trooper but we lost a great human being. I was so pissed that this happened to Tony it really changed my prospective towards the trust of people. Thanks Tony it was an honor meeting and talking to you. You are missed in our community so much and you will never be forgotten

I remember Tony coming out and taking my traffic accidents when I worked the road. He always showed up with a big grin on his face. He was one of those rare law enforcement officers who always had a great attitude, smile, and kind heart. Although I never had the pleasure of really getting to know him, I do feel a significant loss when I think back to my patrol days. I do remember him often, and I think I always will. God Bless Tony.

Trooper Radulescu, you are an inspiration. You've come to this country like myself in search of a better life and an opportunity to shine but you had achieved so much. You gained a lot of respect from your colleagues in the law enforcement community and the citizens of this state. For this I applaud you.
Know that your fellow countrymen from Romania and Moldova are proud of you. You showed that we can be just as good as them.
Sa te odihneasca bunul Dimnezeu in pace si sa-ti fie usoara tarina.

Tony - know that you are still loved by many. If what you stand for that is not what we all strive for dialy, I don't know what we should then.
Tony - please take care of my son Nicholas Jennings who now has the watch. I have done what I can, buying his backup, but make sure he wears his vest and goes by the book. Mom and I love him so much as much as does our grand so to all that pray for tony, please pray for my son, Nick too - Badge 908 - Vancouver-Chealis area.

To the love of my life,

Not a day goes by that I do not think of you and miss you so much. I know your safe and in the presence of God's love. It does not make the pain of losing you any less.
You would have been so proud of the HERO's honor you received along with all of your fallen in Washington DC this year.
It was a fitting tribute to a man who gave to his country and then his community.
I miss your wonderful smile and the deep love we shared. I love you and you are always with me in my heart.

I love you Tony,

I had the honor to hear the story of this HERO Trooper Tony Radulescu from his co-workers and brothers few weeks ago in Washington DC at the Police Memorial vigil.I was very saddened to find out how tragic he died in the line of duty and also I dedicated my 5k police memorial run to him.Talking to his co-workers who were wearing t-shirts with his name at vigil revealed that he was a remarkable man and dedicated officer and friend who's still alive in their memory.He was taken too soon from the life and job he loved.His sacrifice will always be honored and he will never be forgotten! Rest in peace!
