I have laid down my life in service to all of you.
I have been a part of the fabric that has held the line between your safety and your victimization. I have given my life so that others may live in peace. I have lived my life as a dedicated member of the greatest profession. There is no greater honor.

As I now become a part of the rich history of law enforcement, please remember me always for I have left behind those who loved and depended upon me.
My partners and my agency, please remember my family, their loss, and don’t let time soften your compassion for them.

You guard the gate now and I will continue my watch from above.

Captain Geach, Bless you and the Reno Police Department. To all officers in the Reno Police Dept., thank you for everything you do for fallen officers. We know if there is a fallen officer in Northern California that the Reno Police Dept. will be there to pay respect to their brother or sister, to their family, and their agency.

Captain Geach's memory is still honored and revered in this 62nd anniverary year of his tragic death. What a devastating blow it must have been to lose two officers in the same incident.

Grandfather...while you died before your time and before I was a twinkle in your Son's eyes, I pray for you often that you are guarding the gates of heaven after making the ultimate sacrifice. You are missed by all that knew your gracious way and those that looked to you for leadership. God bless you and keep our family safe in heaven.

Great Grandfather-

Although I never knew you, I think of you often. I am so proud that the City of Reno has allowed me access to your life. I look forward to sharing this memorial with my children. You will always be remembered. Thank you.
