On behalf of the Westerville, Ohio Division of Police, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Trooper Kevin K. Conner and the extended law enforcement family of the North Carolina Highway Patrol, North Carolina.

End of Watch Wednesday, October 17, 2018.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your memory.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper

You were a great Highway Patrol Officer and I thank you for all of your service you gave to the entire State of North Carolina. You will be missed by everyone who you worked with. Your life just came to an abrupt end as a bullet took your life. The suspect who did this to you maybe making reservations for a one way trip to death row in prison. You will be honored by all of your fellow officers in both Washington and in Raleigh at both memorials next year.
