Honoring the Memory of Trooper Richard Gaston

What an honor to participate in FOP Lodge 123’s Annual Golf Outing! We were able to sponsor a hole in memory of Trooper Richard T. Gaston.

Sadly, in the final days of his field training, Trooper Gaston was conducting a traffic stop with field training officer Senior Trooper Bradley Kaizer. During the stop on the Indiana Toll Road in St. Joseph County, a westbound semi-tractor trailer drove off the roadway and struck the troopers’ vehicle, killing Trooper Gaston and two people in another car.

Sales managers, Ross Larimore and John Masterson met Trooper Gaston’s family and presented them with this flag that honored him.
