Reflections for Lieutenant Kevin Stolinsky

Heavenly Father, You are Compassionate and Merciful. None of America’s Peace Officers leave home without the fear of not returning at the end of their watch. It is a fear that is lived daily. Unfortunately, the worst does sometimes come to pass, and lives are left shattered. Lord God, bless and keep the hearts and souls of those who have lost loved ones in the line of duty. Wipe away the tears from their eyes. Soothe their pain and bind up their emotional wounds through the wounds of Your beloved Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. In His name, I pray. Amen.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons [children] of God.” [Matthew 5:9 ESV]

“And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” [Isaiah 6:8 ESV]

Lt. Stolinsky,
On today, the 1st anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the USN during OIF and OEF. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Kevin was my best friend. I am not a police officer but we served together in the US Navy Seabees and had gone to war together.
Kevin's nickname was "Intel". He always wanted to be involved and always knew the "gouge" as we called it. His job in the Seabees was a Construction Electrician and he made it to the rank of Petty Officer First Class before retirement. He was definitely no electrician but he tested well and knew how to get a project done with the people around him.
Our lives were pretty busy but we got together on Mondays for coffee and had plans to hang out at Kids Inc. the Saturday following his death. Casey and Squeaks will always be in our lives and I hope to be a positive role model for her as she grows up. Many may not know but some of his last words as he propped his feet up and kicked back in his chair that friday evening were, "this is the life". He died a happy and content Father, Husband, Brother, Veteran, Police Officer. I will miss him until the day we are reunited.
