Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Guy Cecil Massey, Sr.

Deputy Massey: Thanks for your sacrifice to your county, state and to this great nation. Sorry to hear about your memorial being defaced--however wrong and ignorant it is to disrespect brave men/women such as yourself--what cannot be destroyed is your/and our profession's undying dedication, conviction, courage, integrity and willingness to always lay our lives on the line for complete strangers--no matter their background, creed or ethnicity. You honor our profession.

James Lopey, Asst. Sheriff (Ret.)
Washoe County Sheriff (Reno, Nv.) and current NVDPS

Rest in peace and always know that your service and sacrifice will never, ever be forgotten by your law enforcement brethren.

This is my grandfather, "Papa Guy" to the family. Today, August 29, 2020, I am in tears that the law enforcement commanders in Raleigh and Wake County allowed the memorial to be defaced by a mob of hoodlums and thugs as they "protested" the loss of black lives. Anarchy will never prevail because there are still officers of the same caliber as my grandfather in the ranks who hold their oath "to protect and to serve" on hallowed ground.

Guy is my great uncle. My dad has told me this story many times. First Wake Co. Sheriff Deputy to die in the line of duty. You are remembered. Proud of you and thank you for your service. RIP

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 76th 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.

My grandfather was born and raised in Zebulon. In this small town, I know that our families knew each other, especially your son. I am honored to leave this reflection for you.

Rest In Peace

The Deputies talk about you all the time. We often talk of the fallen heros while eating dinner. You are on my mind as I approach any 10-33 call. We remember you.

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003).

We all grieve over the lives lost in the line of duty. I hope you can find some comfort knowing that there are countless prayers that go out for your family.

These are senseless tragedies that never seem to stop. God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....
