Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Dennis Randall Wallace

I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,

Abraham Lincoln

I thank God for the courage of the few like Deputy Wallace, that are willing to stand up and defend our communities. His example of bravery and his calling to protect and serve is what is best in all who wear a badge everyday and go out into the world to make a difference. My thoughts and prayers are with the Wallace family and the SCSD family.

I saw Dennis recently & he was laughing & telling a funny story about how he & Bob Winget became D.A.R.E. officers, back in the day. Now they are patrolling the gates of heaven. I miss both of you guys! Sparky-

Deputy Wallace, the filth who murdered you should never again see the light of day, but sadly in this day and age, he will be deemed corrected and contrite and be allowed back out to do more harm. You served your community well but you will not be back from your sentence.

However, so long as those who know and love you best keep you in their hearts and minds, you will never truly be gone.

God Bless you Brother and may you forever Rest in Peace.

I didn't know Dennis as a peach officer. I only knew Dennis as a result of being a coach and friend to his brother David, wife Kim, his family and mother. In knowing both Dennis & David, my wife Sandi and I are comforted knowing that with the untimely passing of Dennis, they will be surrounded by so many friends from their church, relatives, and community. Reading the many "Reflection" attests to the love and respect he has throughout Modesto, Stanislaus County, the state of California and the nation. It all speaks well for a family man who has serve his community well. May he rest in peace in heaven.

Deputy Sheriff Wallace, thank you sir for your service. Thankfully the cop killer has been caught. This criminal can never be allowed to walk upon this Earth as a free man again. The Great State of California still utilizes the Death Penalty, and needs to apply it in this case. The murderer must answer for his actions. The law abiding citizens of California are mourning their loss. We will keep your family and Department in our thoughts. Please watch over us as we carry on.

My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Deputy Wallace, as well as his brothers and sisters with the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Office. It sickens me that a man who has put in that much time serving and protecting complete strangers is senselessly murdered by a coward. Rest in Peace Brother.

Avenue of the Fallen

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms, badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement. All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home.
