RIP Deputy Dennis Wallace

Sunday morning we lost a hero. A man loved by his community. A cop that cared about his community and every person living here. He was doing the job he loved. He was executed by a thug. These killings are happening too often across this nation.

My husband and I knew this wonderful man. We worked with this wonderful man. He will be missed. May his wife and family be blessed beyond words during this horrific time of loss. Rest In Peace, Brother.

Deputy Wallace served the Stanislaus County Sheriff Department for twenty years. He was active in his community by coaching youth soccer and refereeing football. He was also active in anti-drug (DARE) and other early intervention programs in the Sheriff’s Department that involved kids. Deputy Wallace is survived by his wife Mercedes.

The thug that executed Deputy Wallace was arrested approximately 150 miles from here Sunday afternoon.

Monday we drove the streets of our small town and saw many American flags flying, along with a huge tribute in front of the Sheriff’s Office substation. There were also blue balloons all over town. Blue everywhere. It made us proud that this community is honoring this wonderful hero.

    Sad to hear about this Sandee. There are killings here also in our country both uniformed and civilians because of our President's war against drug and it really breaks my heart.

    Sending you big hugs!

    So sad to hear this. We sure send lots of prayers to the wife. It is always terrible when an officer of the law gets killed. Sandee, you and Zane have a good day.

  3. Paul Pietrangelo says:

    Oh my God Sandee. What is going on with our world? I will say prayers today for Deputy Wallace and his family. Why does this continue where great people die? I don't know where to start? I worry for my former student who have decided to choose the proud work of the officers in the police force.
    I'll also say a prayer for you and Zane for being thankful they after working as officers you are still with us.

    RIP Deputy Wallace.

    There are some bad cops out there, we hear about them all the time. There are many, many magnificent Police Officers out there, we hardly ever hear of them except when they are taken early and unjustly. It is sad that the many good ones get so little attention. Very sorry for your…our loss.

  5. Linda says:

    I am very saddened by this, dear Sandee. Things like this happen everywhere and it hurts, and in this case, it makes it all the more personal, as you knew him. I am very sorry for your loss.

  6. Ron Russell says:

    Mush of today's hate toward our men and women in blue can be placed directly on the doorsteps of the man who sits at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. I'm praying this will soon change. The police are indeed, that thin blue line that stands between us and chaos!

    I know it hurts more when it's someone you know, and for that I send you condolences as well as to Deputy Wallace's family. Please know that there are many in this country who didn't know Deputy Wallace, but who will silently grieve his loss and the loss of others in uniform who keep us safe every day and every night. God speed to the Wallace Family.

    So tragic and senseless. It's heartbreaking how much disrespect there is for others these days. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Thinking of you and Zane too.

  9. Traveling Bells says:

    A senseless killing of a beloved man doing his job to try to keep his community safe. I am sad for his family and friends, especially you and Zane. May the perp receive every punishment he richly deserves.

    Heartfelt hugs to you and Zane, honey…

    The ignorant legislature and voters of California have now passed a ballot measure to allow more of these wonderful upright citizens to go free. This is exactly why morons should not be allowed to legislate or to vote. God bless this officer's family, and all of the officers and their families who serve our communities everyday attempting to put scum like this murderer behind bars.

    Stop the madness! Keep felons behind bars without parole… exceptions!

    I'm so sory to hear you lost your co-worker and friend. May he rest in peace, and may his family have some (peace) again soon too. I see your comment above. It may be okay with some, but not the majority, thank God. πŸ™
