The Brother We Lost


Sgt. Oscar R. Thomasson (Ret.)

In Honored Memory
Deputy Frank Hill
EOW: 8/16/1927

A faded photo of a brave man
His deeds faded from memory
For us he left a courageous legacy
The brother we lost

He did his duty on that dark day
Stopping a jail break, he lost his life
He left behind a young daughter and a wife
The brother we lost

Keeping watch over evil men
Doing his duty he was gunned down
His last mortal act was to lock them down
The brother we lost

He stood his ground on that fateful day
Let us always remember to honor him
May his memory never dim
The brother we lost

Deputy Hill,

I just took the black band off of my badge 80 years later. Those of us who know what happened and how you gave your life will never forget. I'd like to think that that kind of thing couldn't happen today, I guess that's why we don't ware our weapons into the jail. Know that all this time later we still remember you and that you made this place a bit safer while you were here. There are hundereds of us now making a difference in this cow town that became a metropolis. If you could see us now I know you would be proud at what we are and the community that we protect. Sedgwick County is an amazing place. I was born and raised here and now I'm honered to protect it just like you did so many years ago. Rest easy and know that the watch continues so many years later. I'd like to think that's the way you wanted it so many years ago.

I found it sad that an officer who gave his life on this job had no reflections posted here for him. Almost 80 yrs. later, and your eternal brothers in blue still reflect on the ultimate sacrifice that you made. Salute.
