Honor Mission
David Dorn, Retired

St. Louis, Missouri – 06-09, 10-20

ABOUT THE MISSION:

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Patriot Guard Riders, please join us in standing for fallen Law Enforcement Offficer David Dorn, just as he once stood for every one of us. Mr. Dorn entered into law enforcement as a rookie in 1969. Through his 38 years of service to the St. Louis Police Department, Officer Dorn was Deputy Commander of the Bureau of Patrol Support which oversaw Traffic, Mounted Patrols, Commercial Vehicles and Tactical Units. Officer Dorn retired as Captain in 2007. Shortly there after, Mr. Dorn became the Chief of Police at Moline Acres, as a St. Louis County Police Officer. Mr. Dorn and his wife, Sgt. Ann Marie Dorn took special interest in supporting youth groups, and were both involved in running the St. Louis Explorer Program, which catered to young people who had an interest in Law Enforcement. Recently, while practicing law enforcement during civil unrest, Mr. Dorn’s life was tragically taken at the age of 77. Thank you Mr. Dorn for a lifetime of community service. Your commitment and dedication to serve our community will always be appreciated, and will never be forgotten.

  3. Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there.
    I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry;
    I am not there.
    I did not die.

  4. It is with the deepest respect that I wish to extend my condolences to the family and friends of this hero. He has shown himself to be a true American for serving this great country of ours. He can now RIP at our Lords side.
