"The loss of John leaves a large hole in the fabric of the West Linn Police Department" - Chief Terry Timeus
(WEST LINN, Ore.) - On December 18, 2009 West Linn Police Department Officer John Satter lost a short but fierce battle with an aggressive cancer. He had put in his retirement paperwork just a few weeks before he passed.
John was a 20 year veteran of the force, and was the first motorcycle officer to be deployed with the WLPD.
Officer Satter spent his career in the patrol division, working stints in traffic, including truck inspections.
He leaves behind his wife, Rene, adult children Jaime and Jeremy Satter, and step daughter McKenzie St.Clair. A memorial service is set for today ( Jan. 2, 2010) at New Hope Community Church at 11731 SE Stevens Rd in Portland, at 2:00 P.M.
A police motorcade will leave the West Linn Police Department at 12:45 p.m., and proceed to the church. During the memorial for Officer Satter, the Lake Oswego Police Department will be handling calls for service in the City to allow the West Linn Officers to attend Ofc. Satter's service.
The coverage will be seamless and citizens should not notice any difference in service levels. "The loss of John leaves a large hole in the fabric of the West Linn Police Department" Chief Terry Timeus said, "He was one of our finest, was loved by all and will be sorely missed, our thoughts are with his family."
