Reflections for Police Officer Lyndon Fred King

Officer King you are still remembered and respected for the person you were and the sacrifice you made. My prayers are with your family.

My Dearest Lyndon,

You are truly our hero. Michael and I miss you very much. We will always love you. You would be very proud of him. He, like you, has great compassion for people and has also dedicated his life to public service. He is a Certified EMT, drives an ambulance, and has just recently completed Paramedic school. He is looking into becoming a Grand Prairie Firefighter. How very much he reminds me of you in appearance and personality. His nature is gentle and his personality is loving. He is quiet in some ways and hilarious in others. He has a smile, like yours, that would light up the world and is very tall and handsome with that beautiful jet black hair. How fortunate I was to find someone like you and be blessed with him.

With All Our Love,

Love, Carolyn and Michael Lyn King

Thank you for your dedicated service to your community and your department. May the Lord bless you and keep you. May they never forget your faithful service to your community and department and the brave HERO that you were. To Carolyn, son, family, friends and co-workers, our heartfelt prayers and sympathies are with you. May God be with you all during this very sorrowful time. Words will never compensate the loss you have suffered. We pray that He now gives you all strength in your time of need. May you find peace in the thought, that we as friends in law enforcement, take this time to lift you up in prayer.

For your act of unselfish bravery and courage Officer King, we salute you. Blessed are the peacemakers.

I worked with Lyndon King weekly at the Century 4 Drive-In. He was warm, had a wonderful sense of humor, a man of integrity. I witnessed his serious side as he protected us in the box office. He was an honorable man and I was blessed to be his friend. He has been gone for 22 years now, but I still remember. I know he would have died to protect us -- no doubt in my mind. In my mind's eye -- I still see him standing there his bright blue eyes and smiling. Quick witted. A joy to be around. I remember when they called me to tell me he left this earth. This was the first time I felt heartache. My friend was gone. I miss our talks Lyndon -- I miss our joking -- I miss my friend. You never know who touches you life in the day to day work environment. 22 years ago and still -- I cry when I must remember. There is still a rainbow - I know I will see Lyndon again in the life to come.

Yesterday May 13th 2002 we held our annual Police Memorial Day Service. I have been Chaplain and Officer with the Grand Prairie Police Department for 11 years. I have seen Lydon's son(Michael) grow up to be a fine young man. Lyndon's memory will continue to as a reminder that life is fragile and we are here to serve for God's purpose as set forth is Romans 13. God Bless You Michael.

Lynn was a fellow-classmate from my police academy (North Central Texas Regional Academy BCAPS #36--1976) informally known as "The Great White Hunter" owing to his early adoption of the .41 Magnum revolver...he was the first--but, unfortunately--not the last member of BCAPS #36 to die in the line of duty. Lynn was one of the quieter, more thoughtful members of a class not especially noted for serious devotion to law enforcement academics. Long since retired and no longer in policing, I remember Lynn with a quite vivid clarity and miss him thoughts and prayers to the family. Bob Holleman

I only knew Lyndon from my early years as a child and teenager. But I do remember him as a kind and gentle person, willing to help anyone; the perfect characteristics for a perfect officer. We must all take solice in the fact that he is in a better place; and I am sure maintaining law and order.
