Officer Radulescu was a family man, and a community man. He always cared a great deal about the well-being of others and was always curteous and helpful. I can't fathom how this could've happened. Nothing can explain how empty his sudden loss has made me, all of us feel - and I barely knew him.

To a great family, I try to live by this to the best of my ability:

Life in not what happens to you, but how you react to it.

Hwy 16 between Bremerton and Port Orchard is a well known route to me as I travel it practically every day to and from. Honestly - I always hope I wouldn't see those white vehicles with the WSP license or worse yet - see those blue lights in my rear view mirror. In the 20 plus years I have seen them a few times and it's possible in these years I went past you or you past me! That stretch of Hwy will never be the same for I will always remember how a man doing his job lost his life there. I apologize for not wanting to see you or the other troopers - at least if I see you I know you are ok. I thank you for the years of service Trooper Tony. I grieve for your family and what they will have to endure these next years. I believe you are in the Lord's Hands now, where we all will be able to be one day. That is the only way to make sense of all this. Bless you and your family and thank you for all you provided to the Kitsap community.

I have fond memories of Tony during his time with the 3/414th, an Army Reserve unit on Ft Lewis. He was a patriot and a soldier that I would proudly go to war with. Godspeed Rad, and condolences to your Families at home and in the law enforcement community. With you on advance party I know things will be squared away when the rest of us meet at the rally point in heaven.

God Bless you Tony. Your smile, your joy, and your giving spirit will be greatly missed. District 8 won't be the same without you. We already miss our Friend.

So sad that we lost another brother to a senseless act committed by a monster.

For his family, friends, fellow officers and community it is a great loss. For those of us who had never met him, it too is a great loss for we have been denied forever the privilege.

Peace, blessings and prayers to you and your loved ones.

May God bless your soul and be with your family, friends, and co-workers. You are truly an outstanding man, first serving your country and then serving your community. Your true character is brought forth in the reflections that have been left talking about how you always went the extra mile to help others, a truly caring person. Trooper Radulescu, you are certainly a man we can all honor.

On behalf of my family i extend all our thoughts and prayers to officer Tony and his family. People tend to think negatively towards law enforcement until they need them. What those people dont understand is the incredibly dangerous job they have to endure.."a simple traffic stop". so the next time you get pulled over for a "simple traffic stop" show them the respect they deserve. They really are out there to protect and serve!!! I spent some time in the military officer Tony also so i say to you my brother "rest in peace and thanks for your service"

St. Augustine once said that Faith is to believe in what you do not yet see, The reward for your faith is to see what you believe...
To God I pray and offer all my faith and belief that one day we shall all live in everlasting peace, Until then Lord, Shed your light and grace upon the men and women that have earned the right to be called a Law Enforcement Officers...

RIP Trooper Radulescu, you have changed the lives of many and served this state well... We will take watch from here.

Sorry for your loss seems to say that I do not really have anything to say. But that is not the case. I am thankful the men and women who go to work everyday to keep us safe. They put it all on the line for us always. I feel such sadness for the family at this time. May they know they are in our prayers and thoughts. I wish for the troopers family love and peace thought this difficult period. May they also know we may be strangers but I feel a lost of a good person. May God watch over the family.

Trooper Radulescu, gone but not forgotten. You will be deeply missed by all of us at the WSP. I am proud to wear the same uniform and work with numerous others just like you. God bless your family and those that worked with you daily. RIP Tony, we have the watch now.

We have lost another knight....a singular man, who lived a life of service to us all. He personified all that is most admirable...and shows most often in our police and our military: Courage, honor, grace, compassion, strength, brilliance, honesty, and unbounded love. He stands now with the angels, yet also at the sides of his fellow Troopers, and those he loved most. The loss of such a man is a deep wound...but we must face it, and ever resolve to be more of what he lived each day. That seems to me to be the best way to do him honor. We send our love and support to his dear family, and to our brave Troopers. Do not lose heart, our courageous true hero ever really dies.


February 24, 2012

Thank you for your 16 years of service! May you rest in peace! My heart goes out to your family and friends, God Bless You!

What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness. a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good bye , but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave memories to beautiful to forget.

Our thoughts are with your family.

Such a sad, senseless tragedy. Words cannot begin to express my heartfelt condolences. How we take for granted what everyone in law enforcement and other agencies, i.e. fire dept., paramedics do for us every minute of every day. To his family, may you find some peace knowing there are hundreds, if not thousands of us wrapping our arms around you with prayer in hopes of comforting you.

I read the ODMP and am always saddened reading the loss of life. As I read this, I thought what a horrific tragedy and great loss of a decent life. The danger an officer takes when he puts on that badge to serve and protect requires so much courage to face possible hostility. I do not have that courage but have a great respect for those who are able to face such danger on a daily basis to protect all of us. May his family and friends find comfort in his life and service and know he is a hero. That there are many who love and support law enforcement officers and hold them in high regard. Thank you Trooper Radulescu for your dedication to service as an Army veteran and as a Washington State Trooper. You made the world a better place. May you rest in peace and God Bless.
