Kevin, I think of all my officers I work with at UI&U as "my boys." And so many are Galt PD. This saddens me so greatly! I remember getting to know you there, being fully aware of how hard you worked to achieve your BS degree...just a short time ago! You will not be forgotten, and you will always be a part of our Union family. Many prayers go out for you and your loved ones!

The Knights of Olde were Men of Honor
Who used their Might For Right!
Today they’re known as Sheepdogs
Those who carry on the fight.

I am a tired old Sheepdog,
The guardian of my flock.
I keep the predators at bay
And stand watch around the clock.

Please stop the Sheep from pulling my teeth.
I’ll need them for the fight,
When the hungry Wolves come calling
Some dark and deadly night.

I pray I never need my gun
But someday if I do,
May my cause be just!
My draw be quick!
And my aim be ever true!

Heaven holds a special place
For those who do the deed,
Defenders of the innocent
In their hour of need.

May the Sheep someday be grateful.
There’s a debt they cannot pay,
To the Sheepdogs who lay it on the line
Each and every day.

I am proud to be a Sheepdog.
I’ve done my very best.
I’ll stand my watch until my Maker
Calls me home to rest.

But when I meet Saint Peter,
There’s just one request I’ll make:
“Please let me spend Eternity
Standing guard at Heaven’s Gate

Officer Kevin Tonn,
The rest of us Sheepdogs thank you and weep for your ultimate sacrifice. Have no fear Brother, we will continue to guard the flock. God Bless you Brother!

I am heartsick at this devasting loss. Although I no longer live in Galt, it was my privilege to serve as one of Galt PD's volunteer police chaplains for several years and my part of my heart remained behind with all of you who protect and serve. I will hold Officer Tonn's family and fellow officers in prayer. May God bless and keep you all.

Thank you for everything that you stood for. If there was a simple definition of the work "Integrity" is would say "see left" and it would have your picture.

You are a MAN of integrity. Yes, we are all going to miss you, there is no doubt about that. However, I look back at the countless number of people who's heart you have touched, including mine.

Thank you, for taking the time that one day to allow me to pray over you.

You have left a legacy here that will never be forgotten. As tragic as it is, you leave behind a legacy.

Go, my friend, rest in peace. We will meet again.
