Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Robert Lee Paris, Jr.

Bob Paris was one of Tracy, Ca first EMTs in the newly formed EMS system in San Joaquin County by Dr. Ralph Allen . Bob went onto become its first Paramedic & served multiple Tracy Ca agencies including AMR. He was truly the best Paramedic partner a girl could have, Funny & laid back under pressure, Im honored he chose me for his EMT. An amazing Taxadermist & friend. Even after my husband passed he continued to stop by our home & check on me , Im so thankful someone thought to dedicate a portion of Highway 88 to him. He put on more miles than any 5 medics & was the kind of man who you want in Law Enforcement. He deserves to never be forgotten & I never will

Thinking about Deputy Robert Paris on the fifth anniversary of his end of watch. I met his son during Police Week 2013 while his family was taking photos by his name on the National Memorial Wall. His son shared the story.

Deputy Paris will never be forgotten.

I didn't get the honor of knowing Bob, but my father did. My Father and Bob were very good friends. They first met at Modesto Reservoir when they were working graveyard shift together. Their friendship grew from there. they always went hunting together. The other day, we went and visited his grave. That was the first time I had ever seen my dad cry.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and we thank Deputy Paris for his service to Stanislaus county

If Today Is to Be the Day…So Be It

By Brian Terry

If you seek to do battle with me this day, you will receive the best that I am capable of giving.

It may not be enough, but it will be everything that I have to give and it will be impressive for I have constantly prepared myself for this day.

I have trained, drilled and rehearsed my actions so that I might have the best chance of defeating you.

I have kept myself in peak physical condition, schooled myself in the martial skills and have become proficient in the applications of combat tactics.

You may defeat me, but I’m willing to die if necessary. I do not fear death for I have been close enough to it on enough occasions that it no longer concerns me.

But, I do fear the loss of my honor and would rather die fighting than to have it said that I was without courage.

So I will fight you, no matter how insurmountable it may seem, to the death if need be, in order that it may never be said of me that I was not a warrior.”

Though I never knew him, he was part of my Law Enforcement family and I will mourn this deep loss the rest of my life. My heart aches with all the losses we have suffered, and continue to suffer, through the years. God is our only peace through such incidents. May family & friends feel the presence of the "God of All Comfort" as they endure the distressing days ahead. I join them in their agonizing grief & remember them in my prayers.

Another senseless tragedy
Another day of grief,
Another day of praying
To help us find relief.

Relief from bitter anguish
Relief from rage so great,
Relief from lenient justice
Which continues to seal our fate.

Relief from heartache’s torment
As we continue on,
Oh, the awesome loss of brotherhood
Now that you are gone.

Though our hearts are deeply broken
And our tears forever flow,
There’s a comforting assurance
That now with God you go.

We know that you are welcome
Now at Heaven’s gate,
While meeting brothers & sisters
Who also met such fate.

The family of Law Enforcement
Knows no distance here or there,
And we recall in comfort
You await us there.
