Reflections for Sheriff Abram L. Kulp

My daughter, MaryEllen Kelly is currently a Bucks County, PA Deputy Sheriff (Badge#82). She recently completed the 2019 Police Unity Bike Ride to Washington, DC. She rode for Sheriff Kulp and has a bracelet to remember and reflect his sacrifice.

She is proud to be able to have accomplished such a fete and to sacrifice for those no longer here.

Having 2 daughters in law enforcement, especially these days, can give parents pause. I love my girls and know that both of them would not wanted to be anything else in the world! That says volumes about their personalities. God bless EVERY person that put on the uniform and for the sacrifices that may fall on anyone.

Thank you for your service to the citizens of Bucks County. I was speaking with a realitive tonight who informed me of your sacrifice. I immediately went to this site for more details. God Bless You.

As the 32nd date of this tragic accident approaches, I am preparing to honor Deputy Warta, Deputy Bateman and Sheriff Kulp in a bicycle ride from Central NJ to Washington D.C. within the Police Unity Tour organization in May of 2019.

I ask that you please leave as much information about these men as husbands, fathers, brothers, partners, and friends so that I may ride with a true sense of how these men lived their lives.

Any family members that will be in Washington D.C. will be presented with the bracelet with the men's name on it that traveled with a rider throughout the 300 mile long journey.

The motto for this ride is, "WE RIDE FOR THOSE WHO DIED" and the money goes to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund where the focus (and carved into the wall with all 21,000+ officers names) is the line, "It is not how these officers died that made them heroes, but how they lived." And I plan to help remember the lives they lived in May 2019.

My mother was only 15 when her father Abram died and was one of 9 children. I never had the privilege to know my grandfather but the stories I heard from my aunts, uncles and cousins gave me some insight to his reputation. He was a smart, family and service minded christian man who was liked by many and even the county prisoners. All his children have passed on and are in heaven with him so that his family are together again.

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.

Rest In Peace.
