A Shreveport Police Officer and friend to many, Thomas LaValley was killed in the line of duty on August 5, 2015. Only 29 years old he touched the hearts of many. A kind, genuine, and extremely loyal friend Thomas would eagerly help his family, friends, and even strangers. He is now resting eternally in his home of St. Amant, Ascension Parish, Louisiania. He will be dearly missed.
Thomas was a man of simple taste and I believe the t-shirt design reflects just that. He always told me things were "too fancy" for him. The day before he was killed I tried to get him to come to the gym Chris Redford teaches fitness classes at. It also has a rock wall. He told me it was "sooo fancy" and that he can't. The next day, the morning of, I started the conversation back up telling him they had free ice cream. He replied "Free ice cream!?!?!" "Fancyyy..rock climbing"
Thomas definitely loved a simple t-shirt. I hope this t-shirt isn't "too fancy" for you Thomas! We miss you.
Cost and location of the memorial is still being determined as logistics for a memorial on public property is being discussed.
