Kieser, once shot and on the ground,
told the man that he had a son and to
please not shoot again, but he did, saying
it was because Kieser pointed a finger at

I was in a position later to help in hiring
Kieser's son Kent, who also had a career
with ISP.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

my family relative...
I never knew you but thank you so much for what you have done. You didn't have to respond to that call but you did. My dad Forrest Kieser has followed in your footsteps and has talked about you in the past about how brave you were. I hope to one day meet you some day because you went above and beyond your call of duty to protect those in need and we will never be able to thank you enough. You gave your life so othes may live and we will forever be grateful.
Forever and always your cousin,
Kyle Kieser

Our Greatest Fear
Yet once again the Thin Blue Line is diminished,
an officer’s final tour of duty is finished.
"Officer down", it’s our greatest fear,
and once again, I hold back a tear.
They patrol in the state, city, county and town,
in uniforms colored white, green, blue and brown.
The shape of their badges may vary,
but it’s a symbol that they all, proudly carry.
They leave for work with a kiss goodbye,
but some don’t come home, no matter how hard they try.
To uphold the law is the job that they pick,
with such high aspirations, why must some die so quick?
They leave behind loved ones, family and friends,
after their lives have met tragic ends.
Some die in crashes, others hearts not too stout,
too many have been lost when gunshots ring out.
Our Heavenly Father has called them home,
no more these dark streets do they roam.
Through trial and error they have given their best,
please Lord, now grant them eternal rest.
Yet once again the Thin Blue Line is diminished,
an officer’s final tour of duty is finished.
" Officer down", it’s our greatest fear,
and once again I hold back a tear.
