The community have been sharing condolences on Officer Apple’s obituary

Kevin was one of the good guys! If you weren’t laughing he would make sure to make you laugh. He was an honest and fair officer and genuinely cared about people. He had a tough exterior but was a teddy bear on the inside. He was very loyal and always had his brother and sisters in blues back. Kevin was a gem of an officer and will truly be missed.” — C.

Officer Apple helped me get the help I needed. Him and another officer came to my home after a wellness check was called in on December 27, 2019. These two officers talked to me at my lowest and convinced me to get the help that I needed. Because of Officer Apple and one of his co workers, I lived to see another day. I didn’t hurt myself. I didn’t give in. My entire life changed and I’m so incredibly happy with where I am in my life now. To the family of Office Apple, please know that that because of your son- my sons still have a mother. Thank you.” Unnamed Submission 

Kevin was a special man who I’ve known for 34 years as a friend of his moms. Kevin was always there if you needed him whether you were a friend or stranger. His practical jokes were epic. I saw you grow and become the kind of man that others looked up to and mothers hope their sons become. RIP.” — J. Funk
