BadgeDavid Richard Van Curler (Police Officer)
Chesterfield County Sheriffs Office
By Evelyn M. Robb, Santa Cruz, CA USA
David Richard Van Curler was an Officer with the West Palm Beach (Florida) Police Department, and was killed on April 6, 1967, along side Seargent William Fletcher.

In the late afternoon, Sgt. Fletcher received a call regarding a disturbance at a bank. There was young man banging on the doors to be let in, claiming that he was John the Baptist. Sgt. Fletcher radioed for backup, and it was my father, Officer Van Curler, who answered the call. Sgt. Fletcher tried to call the man down, but was overpowered and shot with his own gun. As my father came riding up, the man approached him, with his hands behind his back, hiding the gun he was now carrying. As my father stopped the bike, he was shot in the chest. Both officers were killed.

My dad's been gone 32 years, but his memory will live forever.

Hebrews 11:6 "But without faith, it is impossible to please him."
