Reflections for Officer George Connery

Rest in peace Officer Connery. Was wondering if you were a distant relative to Sean Connery the actor?

My Grandfather.

My Mom, Catherine Gledhill, passed in 2006 and her strong faith assured her that she would be seeing her 'Papa".

Such a sad story....

Every Minneapolis Police Academy Class selects a fallen Officer to honor. Recruit Class 2013-2 selected Officer George Connery. A flag with his badge number was attached to the class guide-on and carried by the Recruits throughout their Academy. The flag was framed with their class photo and now hangs proudly in the Minneapolis Police Academy

Officer Connery,
On today, the 92nd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Minneapolis.



April 24, 2009

Your heroism and service is honored today as we approach the 92nd anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer, 88 years after you were killed.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

I want to thank you for your sacrifice. I just had the honor of standing guard at the police memorial and ring the bell in your honor.

Fallen, never forgotten.
