2021 City of Moody, Fallen Officer's Ride

Written by  July 3, 2021

  On Sunday, June the 13th, hundred's of people rolled into the Moody Civic Center to honor and pay respects to a couple of their fallen hero's.

It was a beautiful, all be it a little hot, (so hot, that a few of the people had issues by the end of the ride) Sunday afternoon as motorcycle after motorcycle rolled into the parking area with many jeeps and cars mixed in. The Moody police chief was on hand to speak before the ride left and afterwards when the ride returned.

 

  There were a couple of the ride t-shirts that all of the participants signed to give to the wives, (Michelle and Brandy) of the fallen offers that were in attendance. The two officers being honored were, officer Keith Turner, who lost his life while protecting his city on June the 27th, 1998, and Lt. Stephen Williams who while on a domestic violence call on June the 2nd, 2020, was senselessly killed, never to return home to his own family.

  There were a record number of folks that made this ride last year and close to it this year. After gathering for a prayer for a safe ride, the city of Moody escorted the hundreds of folks out and through many neighborhoods as they encountered so many people on the side of the roads and in front of their house, out waving and flying their flags of support for their hero's. So much love and support pouring out that it brought chills and I'm sure, a few tears. It was an awesome sight and an awesome feeling.

We appreciate the addition of the cool shots from Jamie Levan.2021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 12021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 22021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 32021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 42021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 52021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 62021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 72021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 82021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 92021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 112021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 122021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 132021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 142021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 152021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 162021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 172021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 182021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 192021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 202021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 212021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 222021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 232021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 252021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 262021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 272021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 282021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 292021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 302021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 312021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 322021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 332021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 242021 City of Moody Fallen Officers Ride 10
