Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Adolph Cuny

Deputy Cuny, thank you for your service and please know that no passage of time will ever erase your sacrifice. Rest in peace always sir.

Deputy Cuny,

It is a great honor to see your name engraved on this National Police Memorial Wall in Washington DC. The State of Wyoming also did a nice job on May 15, 2011 recognizing your sacrifice for your dedication to civility and the Rule of Law to your Wyoming community. Your enshrinement to the Wyoming LEO Memorial was witnessed by your last living grandson, Pat Cuny whom I'm sure he is with you now. Your great grandson, Dave Cuny and family and many of your descendants also were in attendance. You are a legend in the Cuny family and your name is spoken often. You were truly never forgotten even after 142 years.

On May 13, 2019 your name was spoken aloud by the Attorney General of The United States of America, William Barr, during the reading of the LEO names that were being added to this National Police Memorial and dedicated on May 15, 2019. It was truly my honor to have been a part of the recognition of your history.
