Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Ronald L. Coen

It still brings me peace 25 years later to read these posts. I miss you. I can still feel you running into the back of my feet with your Tonka truck. Some things little sisters never forget.

Ronnie
You became my cherished friend after high school and sparked my interest in EMS and firefighting. You motivated me to be the best I could be and I carry that motivation even today. I miss our hours of EMS talk, crazy fire runs and visits at your house. I am so grateful to have known you, and you will forever be a part of me. Miss ya buddy!

This man saved me from being shot through a door by a drugged out man with a .45 about 6 months before losing his life. I will never forget you and what you did Ron.

Ron,

We never met that I am aware of. We may have played H.S. football against each other. I have heard wonderful tales about you and your siblings. I have seen your picture many times, and thought it would have been nice to know you. Rest assured your family loves and misses you badly. I proudly call your sister Lori, my wife.

NEVER FORGOTTEN-- this went out today FCSO -wide via email--
22 years ago today Deputy Sheriff Ronald Coen was killed in an automobile crash on Stelzer Road while responding to assist another deputy regarding a foot pursuit. His patrol car struck a utility pole after it hydroplaned on a section of road that was wet from a recent rainfall. He was transported to Grant Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries.

Deputy Coen was survived by his parents and five siblings.

So hard to believe its been twenty years. It warms my heart to see the ones that still remember you. Some days I remember you clearly and I think "no wonder they still remember you. ha,ha". It is still as hard some days as it was twenty years ago. Time does not heal all wounds unfortunately. I find peace in the fact of all you accomplished in your short time on earth and that you found love before you died. You lived life to its fullest while you were here.

Rest in peace Ron. I attended Hocking Tech Police Academy in 1990 with Ron and always had a good time. All brothers and sisters in law enforcement stay vigilant, alert and safe.
