The Memorial 

Over 240 police officers came to show their support for Officer Tyler Lenehan. Others came to support Officer Jessica Lenehan, his wife. Alas, bagpipes sang their mournful goodbyes. Police Chief Timothy Albright and others who knew Officer Lenehan offered their condolences and remarks about the officer’s career. One speaker recalled Lenehan’s “big heart, big smile,” while also commenting on how he would make breakfast for the family. Of course, Officer Lenehan was known for his humor and warmth but was also a man of faith. Indeed, many citizens and officers attended not just the memorial but the funeral procession as well. 

The staff of Elk Grove Tribune offers our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Officer Tyler Lenehan. Thank you for your service, Officer Lenehan.

“I hear behind me the 21 gun salute followed by the Bugle Taps. I’m overcome with emotions again and begin to cry. The rumbling of the motorcycles leads the procession along with the bagpipes and drums. We said goodbye to Officer Ty Lenehan.

A great man who was loved by our city, his peers, community, family and friends is gone. We must never forget his love of humanity and keep his memory alive. I am forever a changed woman after attending his service. I will work harder everyday to honor his work and love for humanity. In the end, it is how we treat other and help each other that matters most. It’s ok to cry. It’s ok to be angry. It’s ok to try to make sense of this. It’s ok to feel everything.”
