Reflections for Patrolman Jerry R. Ivey

I attended the academy with Jerry, worked along side of him and was honored to have him as a friend.

I didn't need to search for Jerry's memorial, I still rememeber the date after all these years.

Thank you for your service, you were a good man, friend, and a good cop. You are not forgotten.

I didn't know you personally but you were a close friend of my late Uncle Jim Sherman who was a Deputy Sheriff of Saline County at the time. He was also one of the arresting officers on duty that night. Thank you for your service and sacrifice in making our city a safer place to live.

I never knew you, but I knew your son, Jerry. I grew up with him and went to school with him briefly. I had no idea the impact your death would have on me in later years. I became a Deputy Sheriff in 1998 and can now fully understand and appreciate your sacrifice. You are truly a Hero. Jerry, if you ever read this, know that I believe your father is a true warrior watching over the rest of us who stand behind the badge. I cannot tell you how much I mourne his sacrifice and respect the calibre of man he must have been. God Bless you and your family. Rest in peace Officer............

I never knew Jerry but - what an honor to have a beautiful park named after you! The Jerry Ivey Park in Salina is such a fun place to take the grandchildren when they are here visiting. (We always have to take bread to feed the ducks in the pond.)

Rest in Peace!
