Reflections for Sergeant Sean Patrick Renfro


To the family, friends, and colleagues of Sergeant Sean Renfro:

From the beginning of time after Cain killed his brother, Abel, there has been a need for law enforcement officers to protect the weak and to bring evildoers to justice. This work is necessary in a sinful world and is dangerous. In modern times, some six deputy sheriffs have sacrificed their lives to protect the citizens of Jefferson County, Colorado. Today, we honor the sacrifice of Sergeant Sean Renfro, of the Jefferson County, Colorado, Sheriff’s Office; who was struck and killed in the line-of-duty on Saturday, January 3, 2015, by a vehicle while directing traffic at a traffic collision scene on Highway 285, at Doubleheader Ranch Road near Aspen Park, in Jefferson County, Colorado.

“Lord God, we are grateful for the life of Sergeant Sean Renfro. He died serving us. Help us never to forget. Help us celebrate the life of Sergeant Sean Renfro. and honor his sacrifice. Be with the family, friends, and colleagues of this fallen hero. Comfort them and give them your strength. Guide those who seek to take care of the family of this hero. May those empowered to do so, care for them with integrity. In commemorating the death of this hero, help those who mourn to remember that death is not the end. Death does not have the final say, but is simply the transition to the glorious life to come. They should look forward to that life to come with joy and thanksgiving.

As for the citizens of Jefferson County, Colorado, help them to faithfully equip their law enforcement officers with the best tools to protect their county. May their training be adequate to the task. Help the citizens of Jefferson County, Colorado, to remember to pay their law enforcement officers fairly and treat them with respect. Help the citizens of Jefferson County, Colorado, to obey the law and treat each other with dignity so as not to add to the burden of crime and pain to their county.

The time for mourning will soon pass. We have now remembered and celebrated the life lost in this great tragedy. As the family, friends, and colleagues of Sergeant Sean Renfro go forward, they must celebrate the good things in their lives; and to celebrate life itself!

Finally, Lord God, we pray for the families, friends, and colleagues of all the law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line-of-duty and we thank you for their sacrifices. Bless the lives of their families, friends, and colleagues so they might find healing. Help their law enforcement organizations support the families of these fallen heroes. Even though their deaths might have been senseless, make something good come out of these situations so that their law enforcement organizations and the communities in which they lived and served might be stronger because of their lives and their deaths. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”

Now, Sergeant Sean Renfro, may the Lord bless you, and keep you: the Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you: the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.

In His Service,

Sgt. Renfro's actions were in the best traditions of a public servant. You may be off duty, but the sense of duty never stops, and his actions in this case reflect that. He should be honored all the more for his willingness to help out in assisting his fellow officers and the public he served for 15 years.
