Reflections for Police Officer Charles Dean Heim

Chuck, I attended a memorial service at Grace Community church over the weekend. It was the first time I had been back since the day of your funeral. I vividly recalled Jimmy Render, the honors, and the massive motorcade. All of it was greatly deserved. We continue to hope that there are still cops as dedicated and as talented as you. in the ranks!

Dear Chuck, I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have our memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, from which I'll never part... XOXOXO May you continue to rest in peace.

Hello my dear. Just a note to say that you are missed. I see you every day in our son. He is you to a T!! You know he even laughs like you did?? He's the spitting image of you. I like to think you came back through him. Travis would have adored you. Thank-you for giving me the most wonderful gift. Until we see each other again.....xoxo

Chuck - It's been sometime since we worked Hollywood Division together - and next thing I knew I was renting a room from you in your place in Canyon Country. I think of your often and the fun times we had - Remerber when I sold you my 77 Chevy El Camino. I remember the day I sold it to you, 2 hours later the back was filled with hay stacks. Happy times my friend. I thought of you today as I was teaching at LAPD's Supervisor School and brought your name up in a happy story. Take care my friend and hope things turned out well for your family..

Chuck and I were classmates in the academy and I saw him throughout the years. We eventually worked Hollywood Station together. Chuck always had a great sense of humor and always had a smile on his face.

Officer Heim,

It is just 15 dsys before the anniversary of your untimely death.

I want your family to know you have not been forgotten!!

I moved to your home town of Canyon Country , Ca about three years ago.

My son attended Sierra Vista Junior High and is now a Canyon Cowboy. My youngest will be at Sierra Vista next year.

Everyday I leave my home I never know if I will come back or what set of circumstances I will end up in. Regardless I will do what it takes to serve the public, that is what we do everyday, we make a difference!!! You fought the good fight YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE!!!

We may have never personally known each other, but you taught me a great deal about the will to fight!!! You had that will to fight and put others before yourself. I will fight just like you did. There is no other job in the world I would even consider doing!!!

Brittani, Your father is a real American HERO AND DESERVES THE HIGHEST HONOR!!! Your father exemplified everything of a true hero!!! I'm sorry about your loss of such a good man and a loving father, but you will always have what he stood for in your heart.

My thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you and your family!!!

I knew Chuck from 7th-8th grade at Sierra Vista Junior High School. After many years, I saw him on Hollywood Blvd working the cruising traffic. I then heard of his death one night on the radio which shocked me deeply. He is buried approximately 200 yards from my father in Newhall. I always think of him as I am now an Arizona Highway Patrolman near the Grand Canyon. He will always be in my memories. God bless his family, I know he is looking down on them and still protecting them. Jeff Jaynes.

Chuck -

I was two when you were shot, so I never really got to know you. Still, I think about you almost every day. I still have the lamb you gave me for my second birthday, just 10 days before you were shot. You were the tru definition of a Deputy for the LAPD. It has been 15 years since you have been with us and people still stop by here to leave a message or a comment. That is truly amazing. I can see by the reflections on here already that you touched many lives with your presence. Mom is great. She misses you and Grandpa, but we know that you're together now. Your service means so much to me. I recently joined the USAF and am set to leave after graduation. Its crazy how fast time flies. Thank you for paying the ultimate sacrifice. We are forever grateful...

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 15th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Although your sacrifice was made years ago, your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace

I was checking the odmp today and seen your picture as being an officer from the past remembered. I instantly recognized you from a "True Detective" magazine article I had read when I was a teenager. Even though we never met I remember your story. RIP
