My deepest sympathy to the Mobilio family. Dave was my roommate while he was attending Butte College. I had a great amount of fun teasing Dave and enjoying his company around the house. He used to walk around the house with his shirt off, flexing his muscles to make all of us laugh. He ate more sushi in one sitting then I have ever seen another human being eat, since. I did not hear of his death until yesterday-almost 3 years after this tragedy. I am very sorry to hear of his death and pray for his family.

I first met Dave when he gave me a ticket for running a stop sign that was removed 3 weeks later. He was a customer in the place that I worked, and after many months of giving him a hard time about it, we became friendly. I was always happy to see him and also got to know his wife and son a little. When he became the new DARE officer at Jackson Heights, my daughter was one of his first students. I had just started my new job with the State of CA when I heard the news and it was such a shock. I will always think of Dave when I see any police car. I have been reading the article in the Bee this week and just want to cry. I hope Linda and Luke are well and can move on with their lives. Dave was a wonderful man who deserves to be honered in every way possible.

I had no idea that this site was available, otherwise I would’ve written much sooner. To Linda and Luke, Laurie and Dick, Lynne, John and Tyler, to Helen, Todd, and Sallie and all their families and the rest of the extended, incredibly wonderful Follansbees and Mobilios and Nicitas and Dunnings: I never met David, but heard much about him during his youth and into adulthood, and I know that he was a truly wonderful guy. Todd -- your tribute to David brought me to tears – it was written beautifully. I’m so sorry that I was not there in person to express my condolences. To all of you, and especially to Linda and Luke, my heart and prayers are with you. I know that your beloved David is watching over you. God bless you all.

I am deeply saddened by what has happened. Andy Mobilio, you'll always be remembered as the days go by. Red Bluff won't be the same in ways without you here. By this act hopefully now people will relize that cops aren't just cops they are citizens just like you and I. Just because they wear blue, hold a badge, and carry a gun doesn't mean he's different. He chose to be a cop not to herras us but to help and protect us. He put his life in danger by becoming a cop. Everyday when they wear the uniform it doen't mean they become someone else, they are themselves. People don't know what police see on their side because people are so stubern they just see what they want to see, bad cops, wrong. Dave, you will be in all our prayers forever and always, those that know will never forget all the good you have done for them and for me. Very much love, Colleen

It has been two years today since Dareman Dave was taken from us. Our family talks about him often. He was our son's dare officer and my husband Scott is a sheriff's deputy for Tehama County and worked with him. I know that Dave has touched our lives and we will remember him always. God bless Linda, Luke and all of the family. Our prayers are with you. Dave will live forever in all of the kids that he taught. He is a great man. A HERO forever !!

Another birthday has passed for you Dave. And another birthday where the only way we can reach you is thru prayers. Prayers which I know you hear. You must be so proud of Luke and Linda and your folks. Their strength and affection for you honors you. As you give us all the strength to get along, rest assured that justice will be done and that your memory has and will continue to inspire so so many good works in your name. And at night, when it is quiet please take a special moment to comfort those whom you know dampen their pillosw and miss you so terribly. The laughter you so loved is slowly coming back to us all, thanks.

It's been over a year since I first heard of the tragic loss of one of our fellow brothers, and stumbling across this site brings back the feelings of sadness and anger i felt upon hearing the sad news. My heart goes out to Linda and Luke Mobilio. May GOD bless you and comfort you. Having been blessed with a son in July, I question whether I chose the right profession or not, but when I "put it on" each morning and look to my right and left, I know that I am standing along-side my brothers and sisters. Dave...fell free to ride along side me any time.

Good-bye David, candles will burn, for you and all our brothers and sisters who wear a uniform, who have paid the ultimate price, so the rest of us can awake to a new day. Yet given the opportunity to stay safe, would charge ahead saying, "It's my duty!" You are in a safe place now, but I know you are part of God's security force, covering our six, still dedicated to safeguarding those you've left behind. God bless you and keep you safe, and until we meet, thank you. I retired, after thirty-two years with the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department, and will spend the rest of my life loving, with all my heart, my brothers and sisters in uniform. For I know what we owe to those gone, and those "on the line" today, in harms way. You are those with you are in my prayers, God Bless.

I had no idea that this avenue, this way to connect was still available. It's the day after a year after that horrible day, but for too many stupid reasons, I couldn't carve out some time for you until today. So, I went to church by myself and had some time with you and the rest of your family. We all ache, but not surprisingly are holding on to each other to find the strength to support each other - especially Linda and Lukey and your Mom and Dad and Lynnie. Lukey has a lot of you in him - especially your smile and sparkley eyes. Your legacy lives on in him and in every police officer I see and thank. Be well my sweet Dave.

We two, and Helen with us,have spent a few hours together looking atAlbums of Dave's life from infancy to fatherhood.We laughed and cried together with those happy memories, which we can not add to anymore. But Dave's life was filled with challenges, fun, joys,the love of family which made him a happy man. His loss is so deeply felt by us, and always will be, but we thank God for His gift to us of David, and for the strength and love which has come to us from around the globe. We would like to have shared with Laurie, Dick, Lynne, Linda & Luke, John and Tyler, the events of last night and today in Red Bluff where those wonderful people paid tribute yet again to our beloved David. God's blessings on all of you. From David's grandparents in Maine.

Davey, today is a very sad day. I cant believe you have been gone one year. We all miss you so much. Somedays, we laugh a lot thinking of all the silly things you have done. We have so many memories of you as a little boy. After Lukes visit here to Maine I am reminded of you so much;his expressions, movements, impishness and temperment. We try to look for the positive and marvel in your wifes' strength and bravery. We all miss you and keep you close to our hearts. So yes, today is a sad day, but we will smile on as many others knowing you are watching over us. Hugs, Aunt Helen

Hi, my name is Christine. I have been away from Red Bluff since 1992 and so I was unable to meet Dave. I am pretty sure he was a wonderful man from everything I have read and heard from my friends there in Red Bluff. I was nosing around on the internet this evening after I got off work and found this site. I speak to my best friend there quite a lot and she made me aware of this unspeakable act and I have been praying for you're family ever since. My brother was killed from a tragic fall there in the Tehema County Courthouse in 1987, so I know and understand you're pain. It didn't happen quite the same as Dave, you understand what I am getting at. Contact me, if you'd like.

As the anniversary approaches I suggest that one way we all can honor Dave is to show the Peace Officers that we meet every day how much we value and appreciate their service. Never miss a chance to thank them for their valor and spirit. Please don't wait for another tragedy. Love you Dave, Uncle Todd

I have been on the job for 28 years and have been close two many times to count. Just remember God has a plan for you and your family and I am sure Dave is watching down on you.

I can't even imagine what the family of Dave Mobilio has gone through, but I for one can say that after a chance meeting with Linda at a local Chico car wash, I experienced a small measure of the spirit that exists around this whole tradegy. Linda you were truly inspirational to me with your kind smile and apparent indomitable spirit. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do. Thanks and God Bless.

Dave's family. Yesterday was Dave's birthday, I cannot imagine how painful it was. Dave was always a kind man. I remember when I was first hired as a reserve officer at RBPD and was assigned to ride with Dave. You see know one wants to take the reserve officer with them, but Dave always willing agreed to allow me the chance to ride with him on a shift. Dave was a person you could always count on when you needed help, even outside of work. He and Sgt. Marsh spent one whole day helping me hang sheetrock at my house. When I moved into my new house Dave came to help with the move. I was so touched by his love for Luke. It was all he could do to leave Luke with me while he went to help the other guys. It broke his heart when Luke started crying "Daddy", and he left the house with tears welling in his eyes. The day of his death my daughter asked me how will Luke manage without his father. I know now he will be okay because his mother is one of the strongest and loving people I have ever had the previlige to meet. Dave and Linda's love for one another was something you could actually feel when you were in their presence. When I became a full time police officer Dave was always more than willing to go with me and help in anyway he could. I miss our Friday afternoons on patrol when Dave and I would work a project together. As a department we are finally to a point where we can say "Dude" with out it choking up everyone in the squadroom. We talk about Dave often and remember all of the crazy pranks that were pulled on one another. Dave was great, not only could he take a good prank but he always had one for you. I hope his family knows that we will always remember and cherish our moments that we had with Dave. I thank you for sharing him with all of us and allowing us to be blessed by this great man. Dave is now our gardian angel and I know he ride passenger with me from time to time. God bless Linda and Luke for you knew true love. To Dave's parents, Lynne and John, my heart goes out to you everyday. You are always welcome at RBPD. Please accept my sincere condolences to each of you. Officer Kelly Meek, RBPD

I didn't know Officer Mobilio personally, not even at all. But i would like to say that the world has obviously been blessed with him and his uplifting and giving,caring soul. To those who had the oppurtunity to have him in their lives, I am truly sorry for your loss. Always know that he is here in spirit watching closely over your safety and happiness.The heavens are now graced with him,and he makes a perfect angel.What a gain and gift it must have been to have known him.

Having known Officer David Mobilio for a short-time I knew he was such a great guy to talk to about anything. I am really going to miss him. I know we could talk to him about anything if he came to our high school for some reason. I only hope the best for you Linda&Luke If you do need anything please e-mail me. On the morning of Dave's death I was devasted wondering how to go on the radio and broadcast what has happend to our man that wears the badge, I didn't do any broadcasting for 2 days. We will make it through. Love Always, Chris Stevens Graudate of Red Bluff High School 2003

After living most of my life in Red Bluff, I realize how close knit the community is. To have a loss this great is such a tragedy. To Linda, keep your son close and your husband's memories in his and your hearts forever. To Luke, your dad was a great honor to his community and to your family. Never forget him. He is truly a hero. God be with you both. May He bring you peace and comfort in this time of pain and difficulty. May His light forever shine on you.

I attended the funeral with a group of Deputies I work with in Sacramento County. Without a doubt the sadest event I have ever attended. I didn't know if I would cry for someone I did not know, there was not a dry eye in the house. I was proud to represent my county, and Officer Mobilio would of been proud of the City of Red Bluff and Tehama County for an unbelieveable memorial.

I have always had great respect and admiration for police officers and all they do to make our communities safe and peaceful. It never ceases to amaze me that there is a special breed of people out there who are willing to risk everything for people they don't even know. Daily, they go out into the communities and put it all on the line. Everything they are and everything they will ever be could be taken away in a heartbeat. Yet, they do it anyway. Courage. Sacrifice. Hardship. Officer Dave Mobilio's willingness to sacrifice himself for his fellow man represents law enforcement's highest traditions and reflects great honor on himself, his fellow officers and his family. As a grateful citizen, I wish to offer my sincerest condolences to Officer Mobilio and all who knew and loved him.

My prayers and love go out to Mrs. Mobilio, the Mobilio family, and the community.

My condolences go out to Linda, Luke, and the Mobilio family. I understand how hard it is to lose a very loved one. Dave was a great person who was always willing to help in anything he could. He was never to busy to lend a helping had. Linda remember he will always be watching over you walking next to you and Luke, protecting you in every way he can. He is your Guardian Angel. As you know he loves you very much. As many have said GOD takes his best people from here to go home with him. My condolences to the Red Bluff Police Dept. I know waht your going through. My prayers for all of you and know Dave will also be watching over each one of you. Icry with you and know how you feel. He will be deeply missed, but WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.

I never got to meet my brother's new brother-in-law, but it is very clear to me that he was a terrific guy, father, son, brother, and cop who was dearly loved. It breaks my heart to hear about tragedies like this. I am a military officer and I see my colleagues risk their lives in deployments all the time. But Dave is in the noblest profession, having laid his life on the line every single day to protect the public. My family sends our deepest condolences to the Mobilios, especially Dave's wife and kids. jsp

I did not know Dave but I'm sure he was a great man and a great Police Officer, I am sure he is now an angel for the rest of us to call upon. Please remember what President Bush said several years ago. "It is not how these men died that made them hero's, it's how they lived". I would also like to extend my condoences to Dave's fellow officers at the Red Bluff Police Department, May God bless you all.

A death like this is something I do not think anyone will ever understand. We are not ment to make sense out of something so senseless. As I viewed the web page that was created for Daves family and friends I saw pictures of my own family and friends. My brother-in-law and a few childhood friends are also police officers in Red Bluff. I can not belive this happened in such a small,loving town. I know this will impact those who knew him deeply, as it has impacted many around the world who did not. May God be with each person who is called for a line of duty to serve and protect each of us. I will remember you in my prayers.

Today I finally had the strength to come to this page and send our condolences and prayers to the Mobilio Family. The pain and sorrow I feel are so strong. My husband is a deputy with the Tehema Co. Sheriff's Dept. and he gets gas where Dave got his gas. This could of happened to any of the fine men and women that protect our city and county. For this to have happened to such a good man is unthinkable. Dave not only protected our city but educated our children about right and wrong, good and bad. What happened to him was wrong and bad. Our son Mackenzie was one of his D.A.R.E. students this year. He cried when he found out about Officer Dave and still has a hard time with it. I thank you for sharing Dave with us. It's not fair what happened but God with have his wrath in the end. Dave is in a better place. As christians we know we will see him again and that he is watching over his family until they meet again. God bless you and comfort you in your loss.

My deepest condolences to the Mobilio Family for their recent loss. In my 18 years as an LA County Deputy I have had to witness the burial of many friends. As I reflect on the loss of my friends and the loss of Officer Mobilio, I am humbled. It seems we lose the really good ones when they are young. I truely believe that God calls the exceptional ones home, while they are young, because they have set them selves apart from the rest of us. We could only hope to be viewed in this manner when our time comes. We buried one of our own on Friday (12-6-02). Attending Deputy Powells funeral and seeing how he led his life, affirms my belief. God bless the Mobilio Family, his fellow Officers, Co-workers and Chief Petitt who I had the honor of working with early in my career.

We know what a feeling of great loss it is to lose a fellow officer. We have just lost one of our own, Deputy David Powell of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. There is truly a comradery and a brotherhood felt by all those in law enforcement, and when one of us loses a hero, we all mourn together.

As the new director of the Tehama County Social Services Department I heard many wonderful things about Dave and his work with children both in the schools and in situations with our social workers in Child Welfare helping protect the safety of vulnerable children from homes where they were at risk of abuse and neglect or endangerment. It was a shock to hear of his tragic death, and a shock and loss that our staff members are still reeling from. We talk about Dave often, and his memory is alive with all the many other professionals whose lives he touched as well as the many children who benefited from his intervention and his attention. My prayers go out to his family, friends and colleagues as we all deal with his loss.

To All of The Mobilio Family: There really are no adequate words to convey how very saddened I was to hear the news of David's tragic death. I keep going back to the last time I saw him, which was nine years ago on Cape Cod at his Grandparents' anniversary get-together where he was the target of much attention by his young cousins who spent much of the weekend pestering him for piggyback rides and climbing on him. Throughout it all David remained cheerful and accomodating and the little girls were thrilled with the fact that he continued to play with them. I remember marvelling at what a sweet and gentle young man he was. He was large in both size and heart! Obviously many other people who knew David felt the same way. It pains me to think of what you must be going through, for I cannot even imagine a despair so great. I pray that you will find the strength to go on from the brightness of the light that David cast onto others and know that this separation is only temporary. My heart and prayers will remain with all of you. Much love, CeCe

When someone kills an officer it's like killing a brother or sister to all of us involved in Law Enforcement. I did not know Dave, but when I heard what had happened it felt like a part of me ,as well others who share my opinion ,was lost. I appreciate all that Dave has done for our Law Enforcement Communtiy and will remember many of the stories I heard at his funeral.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department just lost Deputy Dave Powell on 30 November 2002. He was attempting to make entry to a potential hostage situation when he was gunned down. We understand loss. Our organization has had too much of it. Now both Daves, arm in arm, will patrol a different beat. We, the living, must never forget their sacrifices. Our sincere sympathies go out to the family.

Not everyone would be willing to sacrifice his or her own life for that of a stranger. He must have been an outstanding man.

Dear Dick, Laurie, Lynne, John, Linda & Luke, I just returned from a week in Maine where we spent hours sharing memories of our cousin, David. As I flipped through photo albums with my siblings, many pictures evoked particular stories. Whether David was posing with Travis in his Superhero underwear or braving life on the Sea Folley (despite being incredibly seasick), memories of the silly things that he had done immediately before or after each picture had us laughing through our tears. We miss David terribly and cannot fathom what you are going through. We are honored to have known a true hero and will fight to keep David’s memory alive.

I wish to express my deepest condolences on your loss, and at the same time offer some thoughts that brought comfort to me when I faced similiar greif. The Bible makes the promise: “Your dead ones will live. . . . They will rise up.” And the Bible also says: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.”—Isaiah 26:19; Psalm 37:29. Yes, Almighty God has not only the power but also the desire to resurrect persons whom he chooses. Jesus Christ himself said: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.”—John 5:28, 29; Acts 24:15. When the enemy death strikes, our grief can be great. Even though you may not hope in the earthly resurrection at this time, I sincerely hope you examine these scriptures so as to find great comfort as I have. Please e-mail me if you feel the need to learn more about our Heavenly Father’s loving provision of the resurrection. Again, please accept my deepest sympathy on your loss. Mike Darling

I didn't know Officer Bosiglio, nor did I have to, for being brothers in the law enforcement community is sufficient for us to express our love and feelings, specially for our fallen comrades. When this first occurred, I became very incensed at the needless and cold bloodeness of the crime and was furiously angry at the perpetrator, however, I then became furious with our society's change's that now allow these types of cowards to rampantly prey on innocent people without fear of atonement for their crimes. My prayers go out to the officers family and to the department that he so faithfully served, and to the community for their loss of a fine officer and person. Carlos L.

I was fortunate to meet Mobe in the Craig Hall dorms during our first semester in Chico. While beginning our adult lives in Chico away from our homes, we met many new people and there was a group of us that have always remained extremely good friends. I am so saddened by Mobes death, as this group of friends will never be the same. He was always there if you needed a friend or if you just needed a good laugh. I am lucky to have known him, and will never forget him. I am so sorry for his family as they have lost such a wonderful person. He will be greatly missed and always in my heart.

As an outsider looking in, the past week I have experienced many emotions. It breaks my heart to see Dave's loved ones suffer so much. There was so much pain in the faces of everyone everywhere that it was almost unbearable. Yet I was so fortunate to meet this wonderful family and see that yes, true love does exist. The parents of these two people, Linda and Dave, must be overwhelmed with pride. Linda, you were so loved. Some people wait a lifetime for that. You had the real deal. Take comfort in that. Give that love to Luke. You are so strong; I can't help but to think Dave was there to carry you through. Reach out to those who love you, and there are so many, let them be your strength. I take away a different outlook on life from this tragedy. I want to be a better person. I want people I love to know I love them. If every person feels this ....Then Dave is still at work somewhere...

I will never be able to express my words to the family. My heart is broke, but I cannot begin to imagine the pain of Linda, Luke, Nancy, Jim, Mike, Richard, Laurie, Lynn, John and the rest of the family. The only thing I can do is offer all of you my love, support and the reassurance that I, Luke’s godfather, will be a positive role model in his life. I am forever changed by this tragedy and hope through love and support we can all find comfort that “Mobe” will always be in our hearts. None of us in our wildest dreams expected anything like this to ever happen. I know through our love of Mobe and his family, we will honor Dave and help Luke carry on the legacy of the Mobilio family name. Love, Chris

Being the wife of a Red Bluff Police Officer it broke my heart this week to see all of the officers and their familes struggle with the tragedy with struck our small town last week. I feel in my heart that Dave knows how the community came out and showed he and his family so much love and respect. He would have been so proud. My heart goes out to Linda and Luke and all of the family memebrs that we watched say goodbye with their hearts breaking for a man they loved so very much. Our community will never forget Officer Mobilio and the love and support he gave to all who knew him. Dave will be in our thoughts and prayers forever. He was a true Hero in every way.

I just want to say that Ofc. David Molbilio was a personal friend of mine. I grew up with Dave "Moby"Mobilio and went to Elementary, Middle, and High School with Dave. I kept in touch with him after High School and we even worked together for a short time at a local Saratoga grocery store. Dave and I became Police Officers at about the same time. I work as a Police Officer at San Jose State University. I also had close ties with the Chico area because I went to school there and saw Dave many times. I went on a ride-a-long with Dave after we were both full time Police Officers and I still remember that time. His sudden death has had a profound affect on me and will for the rest of my life. Dave was truly a great guy and a fantastic Police Officer. My heart goes out to Linda and Luke and his family. It was an honor for me to be a part of his mememorial service and see the Red Bluff community come out in astounding numbers. The emotions I felt were hard to keep back. Red Bluff is truly a small town that will forever be in my heart. Dave died a hero. Dave will always be a hero to me. I will never forget. Corporal Paul Marshall

I write on this night before Thanksgiving, thinking about how painful and poignant it must be for those who love(d) Dave. Everywhere in the country, families and friends are gathering, homes are filled with cheer, with the aromas of foods being prepared and with happy memories of holidays past. The holidays set the circumstances of our lives, both good and bad, into italics. This must be so tough for his family. I never knew Dave, though I can sense from the tributes written about him that he was a wonderful person, a gift to those who had the good fortune to have him in their lives. His uncle and godfather, Todd Follansbee in Connecticut, is an old friend of mine. Reflecting on my own years of public service here in northwestern Vermont, I recall many times when I have been grateful for the polic and for the courageous and extraordinary work they do to keep us all safe. To Dave's family, friends and colleagues, please know that people all over the country hold you in their hearts and wish you peace and rest as you adjust to his loss.

Having not known Off. Dave Mobilio personally, I can only offer my sincere condolences to his family and friends, his D.A.R.E. kids, and to his Red Bluff PD family on behalf of myself and my family. I am the proud parent of a rookie police officer with the City of Santa Clara and I pray for his safety often and that of his "brothers" / "sisters" with our city as well as all those in law enforcement. I find myself telling our Dave "be safe" as he goes on duty and this is yet another reminder of why it is so important for us to remember our sons /daughters in prayers for their safety, as they serve and protect us. I know this is a sad time for the Mobilio family and I stand with the Mobilio family as they remember Dave Mobilio's life with pride. He certainly lived up to and was worthy of the title of being his city's "Finest". Bill Britton, JSO, City of Santa Clara

To the Mobilio family: I cannot begin to imagine your grief, but I know you are probably struggling with the "what if..." "If Dave wasn't a police officer he would be alive...etc." Always remember that if he was not an officer he would not be the man you loved or the man so many children looked up to or learned from. I drove into town late Monday night and as most of the people slept I felt Dave's presence. In that quiet time, which I am sure he spent many shifts, he was there in the blue glow illuminating the town. He is watching over us still. I only hope that the solidarity shown by the community is enough to show, he did not die in vain. "If" he was not an officer he would not have touched so many of us, in so many ways. My deepest sympathy. To the RBPD: I know that many times in your chosen profession you feel isolated. You endure insults, attacks-verbal & physical, lack of support, and criticism of your every action on a daily basis. Many times it is a thankless job. I pray each of you saw every face of your town lining the streets Tuesday not only in honor of Dave but in support of each of you who do the job every day. We should say it more often but THANK YOU! Also know that you will never ride alone again. You will always have your very own guardian angel in the seat beside you. For your loss, I am sorry. To All the Officer's Significant Others: Kiss them good-bye every time. Tell them you love them. You don't want to say "If only..." To All the Law Enforcement Agencies aiding and participating in the memorial: Thank you. A truly amazing display of support and brotherly love. I am speechless.

Here is myy tribute to Dave from the Memorial service. I am Todd Follansbee, Laurie’s brother, Dave’s uncle and godfather from New England. We have been New Englanders for nearly 400 years, farmers, merchants, businessmen, sailors but also pubic servants both paid and unpaid. Dave comes from a tradition of people who believed that a great society is possible only if all it’s people find a way to contribute. Dave was one of the richest people I know. Like every person in blue here today, Dave made a conscious choice. It was: “I will be made rich; not by how much I can get but instead by how much I can give.” As long as I can remember, Dave wanted to be a peace officer. This was his hard fought goal; many of us knew how hard he had to work to get this job. He loved his work. --------- He loved his work from the kids to his partners, to the challenges. Let us not cry because Dave failed to get a big piece of his professional dream. He reached that dream. To be in the presence of Linda and Dave was to be in the presence of a palpable, visible, and powerful love that you could actually feel. It was incredible, it was uplifting, and it filled the room as it filled your heart. It was wondrous and it came from two people that were raised in love and whom God brought together. Let us not cry for because we fear that Dave did not know love, for he and Linda knew a love we can all aspire to. A love his friends all knew, a love that Luke will always feel a part of. Dave lived an incredible life, not without challenges, but with a family that defies description for loving, sharing, and enjoying life. A father that brought him to the ends of the earth and taught him by example to be the man he became. Laurie, his Mom taught him love and respect for woman, her friends to a person treasure the wondrous person she is. She blessed his young life beyond measure. Let us not cry for what Dave missed out in his 31 short years cause up to last Tuesday he missed out on practically nothing. Bless his family for this. But let us cry, and loudly, for our loss. Our world is diminished. Let our wails reach Dave as he looks with amazement upon this tribute we give him for he never took a step for glory alone. So now that you know a bit about those who have gone before Dave and our love for America and the sea. Though in all honesty I have to admit that the thing he did best on the ocean was to get seasick. I always suspected that was a big part of the reason Dave ended up in Red Bluff. I think I have dumped more water out of my sea boots than you have in the whole county! No wonder he loved it here I hope then that you will allow me a short poem for Dave and the sea. Watch, if you will, that beautiful ship slip away from his dock out into the open sea, finally to pass below the horizon. Someone says, next to us, “Well, there he goes!” Gone? Gone where? - Only from our own sight. No, he is just as large of mast and hull and sail as when he was here. His departure and diminished size is in us, not in him. And just as that moment comes when someone says, “There, he's gone”. Other voices are ready to take up the glad shout, “Here he comes!” Please know that these voices are many, the welcome is great and Dave knows peace and love and honor. Spending the last few days with Laurie and Dick, my sisters and our parents (and many more) family and friends, not an hour has gone by that we have not given thanks for the support of this wonderful community Red Bluff and this amazing fraternity of Blue. I wish I could tell you how much this has helped us all. I want you to know that it has brought smiles, even laughs to tear stained faces as we have mourned and tried to celebrate Dave’s life We would never have dared to ask for all the support we have received. You have our deepest appreciation. I ask that when the tears have slowed down, as we begin to accept and integrate life without the physical presence of Dave, let us always celebrate him, let us always remember, let us, each and every one, make the simple choices every single day that bring peace to our world. Do it for Dave, do it for yourselves, do it because there is no other way. Let us also remember that Dave was rich beyond measure because of the path he walked. May God help us all to know the happiness he had. Thanks to you all and may god bless you and the land we love.

I am the wife of a police officer in Sacramento CA. We would like to extend our sympathy & condolences to the Mobilio Family as well as the law enforcement family. I would like to share with you a heartfelt poem about our men and women that serve & protect us. "A Part of America Died" Somebody killed a policeman today, and a piece of America died. A piece of our country he swore to protect, will be buried with him at his side. The suspect who shot him will stand up in court, with councel demanding his rights. While a young widowed mother must work for her kids, and spend many long lonely nights. The beat he rode was a battle field too, just as if he had gone off to war. Though the flag of our nation won't fly at halfmast, to his name they will add a gold star. Yes, somebody killed a policeman today, it happened in your town or mine. While we slept in confort behind our locked doors, a cop put his life on the line. Now his ghost rides a beat on a dark city street, and he stands at each new rookies side. He answered the call, and he gave us his all, and a part of America dies. Author unknown Our thoughts and prayers are with you. God Bless to all.

It personally hits home with me because I worked in our schools and with youth like Dave, I also grew up in Redding and spent alot of time in Red Bluff as a kid, and I was the officer who assisted the Ca. Department of Justice in locating the residence of Andrew McCrae. I volunteered to be the first officer to protect the scene until the D.O.J. could come up and process the scene. I am sorry that one of our cities many activist has come into your life in such a way. I do not know the man, Dave Mobilio, but I do feel that I know the officer. I know that he was well liked and repected, I also know that his family is very proud of him. With best wishes and prayers Ofc. Paul Evers - Olympia Police Department

Who would have thought I would come back to my home town not to visit my parents but to pay my respects to Dave. I was profoundly affected by Dave's senseless death, and hope that there is some consolation in that Dave lived his life in a position where is sole purpose was to help his fellow man. He's a hero...not only to the people of Red Bluff, but to his brothers in law enforcement. God Bless. Ofc DeFreece

I am not from a law enforcement family, nor have I ever worked in the industry. Each time I hear of an officer's death it reminds me that some men and women pay the ultimate price in performance of their jobs. I thank God that some choose to be law enforcement officers and make our streets and neighborhoods safer places in which to live. I am saddened by the death of officer Mobilio and sad for his family. It is especially tragic when the officer leaves behind a spouse and a fatherless or motherless child. My prayers to his family, the law enforcement community, and the people of Red Bluff.

Peace officers are a special breed. They work not for the great pay or hours ha ha, but because they want to uphold what is right and just and feel they can make a difference.Thanks to Dave for his example to my boys and to kids throughout the community. You are in our prayers daily!

It is a sad day when a community looses a police officer, especially in a small town such as Red Bluff. A city looses more than an officer when one is killed, they loose a part of the cities innocence. I was priviliged to be able to attend the funeral in Red Bluff today and I was impressed by the response of the citizens of Red Bluff. My sincere condolences to the family, frineds and co-workers. While I did not personally know this fine officer it was apparant that he was well liked and respected by all whose life he touched. May the Peace of God be with all who morne his loss.

Dave also helped our son when he was in the explorer program, he rode with Dave and has great respect for him. It is the fear we have every time our husbands go to work. That is what they like to do is help other people, they live there lives for. Just remember the great person he was, and the people that he helped and made this world a better place. We all feel your pain, our thoughts and prayers are for you and your family, when a fellow officer goes down it hurts, all the offficers and their families.

In Sacramento getting ready for a training class, I first heard Dave's name during the public radio news, and immediately turned on the TV, to watch in shock as the story unfolded. I couldn't believe it then, and it is hard for me to accept it now. The year I worked at RBPD in support of an investigation, I worked in the squad room, in everyone's way, I know. And I got to know everyone there, some more than others; all dedicated people. Dave had a special way of working with people, even those he arrested. When he sensed it would make a difference, he went out of his way to help some of those folks. There was quiet strength to his manner, a self-assured gentleness. The sadness I feel is so deep; he and his family will be remembered in my prayers for years to come. We have a son in the Chico Department. The unspoken fear we have for our son's safety has become, with the loss of Dave, a painful reality. My heart, full of love, goes out to the officers and staff of the RBPD. It takes love to heal such deep pain. And patience. Our healing prayers for Dave's family join hands with the thousands of other prayers and expressions of love and support they continue to receive. May they wrap them around closely, a warm blanket throughout this sad winter.

What a blessing Dave has been in our lives!! I only knew him through my twins whom he had in DARE at Jackson Heights School. They were always so excited if they saw him at football games or all the other events he would be at. They drug me over to Dave one evening at a RBUHS football games, saying, MOM, MOM THERE HE IS!!! OFFICER MOBILIO!! and then they politely introduced me. What a gift we have recieved from having Dave in our lifes I know my kids will always have him in their thoughts through the rest of their lives. May you have some peace in your broken hearts just knowing that he has touched so many people. Just think of the gifts he is going to pass on from Heaven, They can only be greater then what he has already given us all!! My God Bless You and your Families. The Colgate Family

What they do to protect the rest of us is not realized by many until they suffer a loss such as this. We must support our police officers.

We lost a great man when we lost Officer Mobilio. He helped me when I needed help. He also greatly impacted my little sisters life as her DARE officer. When I head the news I was asleep, my husband woke me and told me. I thought I was dreaming I said" No way not Officer Mobilio hes the best cop we got." Now 1 week later it finally sank in now hes the best cop God has. Its amazing reading all the notes from people, people from places you never hear of unless you know somebody there.Please rember he and his family will always be in our thoughts and prayers. He will be greatly missed and always remembered and respected.

To Laurie, Dick and the entire Mobilio family, My memories of David are of us as boys, David, 11 and I, 14, skiing the slopes of Sunday River together. Through the years my only contact with David has been through my mom, Sallie. It seems to me that David attacked life with the same enthusiasm as he had attacked the slopes. Challenging the obstacles with fearless spirit while enjoying every moment. There are no words that can express the sorrow that I am feeling for all of you. I hope that with time and the warm support of family and friends, you can find some peace within. With love, Bryan.

I also pray that today will be the beginning of healing when you see the love and honor bestowed on your deceased loved one.

I did not not know Mr. Mobilio personally, but I used to make him blended Snickers drinks at a local coffee shop here in Red Bluff every now and then. He was very pleasent and nice. He was my little sister's DARE officer, and she always talked of him very highly. He was a positive influence and a role model to many. I believe he was a living angel.

I wanted to share this with the familly and friends of Officer Mobilio. I know this prayer refers to firefighters, but applies so well to police officers as well. Your loved ones sacrifice will not be forgotten. *The Firefighters Prayer* When I am called to duty, God, Wherever flames may rage,Give me the strength to save some life, Whatever be it's age. Help me embrace a little child before it is too late, Or save an older person from a most uncertain fate. Enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout,And quickly and efficiently to put the fire out. And if according to my fate,My days should come to end, Please bless with Your protecting hand,My family and my friends.

Dearest Mobilio Family and all the many friends of David Mobilio: No one is born a hero, it takes years of dedicated work, strong ambition, compassion for those you work for, and that special grace that few of us ever attain. I did not know David Mobilio, except through the pride and fear expressed by his Mother, Laurie, who was a high school classmate. But after reading all the wonderful things everyone who knew him are saying, there is one thing I do know; he is a true hero. The tragic way he left you must not overshadow what he gave to all, the love that he freely offered even to every stranger. As Lord Robert Baden-Powell said, "love is, after all, the spirit of GOD working within you." Though David is gone from your midst, the spirit of love he gave to so many will live on and grow. He is now in a far, far better place than we have ever known. Celebrate his life, for we all know he is in the presence of our Creator, the source all that is love.

He and I used to do the juvenile probation meetings with juveniles that I arrested for shoplifting. I was always very impressed with his abilities to get through to the kids and help in steering them back into the right direction in life. He was always very genuine in what he told these kids because he really did care for their future. I wish more officers were like him. I will miss him very much. He was a friend and a very good man. His family should be proud.

Dave will be missed so very very much by so many people. I talked with him not too long ago at the post office and he was holding his beautiful son and just beaming with so much pride. I thought, what a awesome father! Big man with a tender heart, We will miss you.

My thoughts are with the family and friends of Officer Mobilio. I cannot imagine the pain and loss which they are feeling at this time. I only hope that they can find comfort in such a wonderful community. Upon hearing the news of Officer Mobilio's death I was struck by a sense of shock, sadness and anger. I thought I was having a very bad dream when I read the news online. This senseless act should never have happened to such a wonderful officer or to the community of Red Bluff. I pray that they find who did this, and I pray that the family can eventually find peace. (PS I am happy to say that support for Officer Mobilio and the Red Bluff community is being shown in the Sacramento Area, while driving through Roseville on Friday night I saw many blue porch lights.)

I have never felt such a personal loss in my life, as I have with the sensless way Dave was taken from all of us. I believe that I grieve in my heart, as much as Dave's family is right now. I pray each day that Dave is in a better life, and that he is looking down on all of us. My deepest sympathy goes out to Dave's wife and family at this time of sorrow.

"The sea flows on past the horizon to rest upon a shore out of sight. The stars fade in the morning sunlight and travel to another starry night. The breeze blows quietly around us,then flies away to cool a distant space. Your beloved never really leave you, but go on to another shining place." Such magnificence is shared in these tributes to David. His love will live on in all the lives he touched.... While I never had the privilege of meeting David, I am blessed to know his mom, dad and sister. My thoughts and prayers are with each of them, as well as David's wife and son,in their time of grief. May God watch over you and comfort you. Love, Leslie

"Blessed are the peacekeepers, for they shall be called the sons of God." Linda and Luke and family, I can never express to you how sorry we all are over the loss of our loved one. When Dave first came to ride with me at the police department and told me about his background, and about his family, I asked him why on Earth he wanted to go into law enforcement instead of becomming a businessman of some sort. He told me he always wanted to be a cop, and he wanted to help people. Dave never complained, always seemed to be having a good time on the job and was responsible for making me laugh more times than I can remember. I'm going to miss hearing him say, "Dude!" May God bless you and keep you in his heart. Detective Ron Spurgeon Red Bluff Police Department

I was not a close friend of Officer Mobilio, but knew of him well and met him several times. Through my work when he and Linda would bring baby Luke in for his doctors visits. We all fondly remember David taking time out of his work day whenever Luke had a doctors appointment to come to the visit with his wife Linda. He was such a big man with a big heart. The love on his face for his young son was so sweet. We would always tease him, because when it came time for Luke to get his immunuizations, "the big man" had to leave. We always thought he was so funny that way. My children knew him well because he was their DARE officer. So in my heart I felt he was a friend, because he looked out for our children in this town. He was a good man and my heart breaks for his family. My prayers are with Linda and Luke and the whole Mobilio family. David is in a better place and watching over all of us still making sure we are all safe. God bless. Lori McCaughey and family .

One of our favorite memories of our cousin Dave was when was on his birthday. He came to our house to celebrate, and as a present we made him a paper crown. Being only five years old you can imagine how the crown looked. Despite its appearance David wore our gift proudly. Looking back at all of the memories we are hearbroken to have lost such a wonderful person. We are honored to say that he was part of our family, and his presence will live on forever. We love you Dave and are continuosly thinking of you andeveryone else who loved you too; especially Aunt Laurie, Uncle Dick, Lynnie, John, and sweet Linda and Luke.

A couple of years ago, I had the most beautiful, magestic, acrobatic humpback whale that I have ever encountered in my many years of directing a humpback whale research project. He breached over 100 times in one afternoon! I never named this outstanding whale, knowing that someday I would find someone who deserved the honor. The time has come ... and as a friend of David's loving family and a great admirer of his adventurous, AMAZING parents, this whale will forever be named (in catalogues and posters) after their beautiful son. I am saddened beyond words at their loss... I send love and strength to all of you.

When I heard about the death of Officer Mobilio, I had just finished a deatil with my unit. We were gathered around the briefing table, laughing and joking like we usually do. When the news report came across, there was silence. It hit us at the same time, we had senselessly lost another brother. I think we all tried to hold back the tears. Some were successful, others were not. Although none of us knew Officer Mobilio personally, it hurts just the same. On behalf of the Detective Unit at the Ceres Police Department, I would like to offer our thoughts and prayers to Officer Mobilio's family. Try to take comfort in the fact that he has impacted so many lives during his tour of duty. I am sure they are all better people due to the time and energy he gave them. Also, remember that you have now and forever an extended family to call upon for support. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

My nephew, David Mobilio, so large a physical presence in life, is now greater in death: a true hero. He truly empathized with the people of Red Bluff, because he fully understood and loved his job. David was one of those rare individuals whose experiences grew rom worse to better, a life once lacking to one so filled with joy. To Linda, I give my strength at this cruel but crucial time. To Luke, I give my abundant memories of your father; from wiggly baby to fallen soldier. My nephew, David, achieved so much in so litle time. This was his destiny, his tomorrow. I look at this outpouring of love from friends and strangers; then thank God I knew David Mobilio as family.

I can't understand how some one can commit such a cowardly act on an inocent and loving man.I had the oppertunity to work with Dave in a first grade class that I helped out in. He was a great man that can never be replaced. He touched the lives and hearts of every one that he encountred especially the kids that he worked with. His Ever lasting love for you, Luke and the little one will be with evey step and breath that you all take. We all lost a great peace officer, and friend. We never truly know that if the men we love will ever return from their shifts or not and that's so hard, but the hardest is when they don't. Dave went doing what he loved and what he was good at (protecting the streets of our community). He will be greatly missed and absolutly never forgotten! May he rest in peace in the arms of our heavenly father watching over you, Luke and the little one. Someday you two will be united in eternal life! God Bless you!! Stay strong!!

Linda- I was devastated upon hearing the news of your loss on Tuesday morning. It seems just a short time ago we sat in class (pregnant) at Chico State and shared stories of our husbands work. Though many are saddened, as an officer's wife my heart goes out to you. I hope to talk with you soon as your healing process begins. Please contact me as you feel comfortable doing so. I hope you can find comfort in the following scriptures: "Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves." Romans 13:1-2 - Dave was appointed to his position by our Lord and if left unfound, the person who has done this to him will still receive judgment. "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11 - I have a great book for you based on this scripture. May our Lord Jesus carry you through this time. May you rely on his strength and endurance when you have none left of your own. God bless you and your family, Talk to you soon- Lisa Jackson

All of you are in my thoughts and prayers, always. Dave you are my best friend. I will always feel privileged and horned to know that you accepted me as a close friend. I am very proud of you. The Red Bluff community lost a very special member. On many occasions I rode with Dave while on duty. I know from first hand experience, that he served your city with distinction. Dave, we had our fishing trip planned for this weekend, but we are just going to have to put it off for a while until I can join you some day. Until then, I will keep watch over your family. See you later buddy...

A HUG FROM HEAVEN Don’t be sad, my dear family Don’t be sad and please don’t cry I am right here ~ I have never left you. Don’t you know that love can’t die? I am safe and warm and happy As I’ve never been before. Seeing Jesus face to face Is more than I have bargained for. As I speak I’m right beside you As you walk, I’m by your side. Close your eyes and you’ll see clearly That my spirit has not died. Wake each day in joyful gladness Knowing I'm not far apart. Look to Jesus for the answers He will heal your aching heart. But above all please remember, There is no need for you to cry. I’m right here! I’ve never left you! Don’t you know that love can’t die?

We love you and hope this incredible outpouring of love from so many will sustain and support you through this terribly difficult time. We mourn and grieve with you at the loss of Dave. I have never seen two people love each other more than you and he, nor have I seen a better mother and father. Our prayers are that peace will come to you; that you will feel the presence of Dave still taking care of you. Love doesn't end, it is eternal. We love you and will help you bear this burden. I will forever remember Dave's bear hugs~his strong arms that always felt protective and at the same time could tenderly hold his Luke. I heard it said once that real strength is when a man kneels to help a child. Dave did that often. He is a hero in our home...you, too. We love you dearly, Marsha

Dear Linda. I'm sorry, I dont know how to even start off. I remember when Mo and I were closest, he used to tell peaple that I was his little brother. I think Mo was the only person I know that could call a 6'1' 230 lbs man his little brother and get away with it. At the time I thought it might have been a little childish, but did not think much more than that. Know that I'm a little older With a family of my own, I look back to those days and see that Mo was right. Mo was more than juct a brother, in both my personal life and my perfesional life as I'm sure he was to many. I'm going to miss him dearly. I will cherrish the moments when I tell my children all the stories of the bigg friend that I Called Mo. Yours Truely Dan Angel Deputy, Butte County Sheriff's Office

Dear David, I want to join in the heartfelt outpouring of love and appreciation for the goodness of your soul. Your example represents the best this life can offer. Your heart was bigger than life itself. You leave us a legacy of what a devoted father should be. Your complete unqueationed love and devotion to your sweetheart Linda and beautiful son Luke will forever stand as a tribute etched in our hearts. Your father, mother, and sister miss you so much. This is so terribly hard on them as well as the rest of us who love you. As I read the tender expressions of care from so many wonderful people whose lives you touched, I realize just how big your extended family is. What a blessing you have been to our lives. Evil will never triumph over good. May your strength reach out and embrace all those who need to know that you are alright. May your arms encircle your loved ones forever is my prayer. May your rightous spirit stand as a sentinel for all that is good and warm the hearts of all those in need. Love, your uncle Jim.

Although our life path's never intersected, I know of you. It was you or someone like you that heard the faint plea for help from a child's incorrigibility; saw a desperate need for some intervention within the community and took immediate steps to become involved; instead of taking the easy course of arrest to eradicate a problem, you looked at the cause and helped to put into place policies, proceedures, and a change of "thought process" to reduce the cause of the problem. Now that you have been promoted to patrol the heaven's and your Sector and Beat is larger than was your life, please lend a guiding hand to the beat cop you see in need of a little guidance to understand, reflect, and make wise decisions. For all of us that wear the "Badge", could use some help at times when immediate decisions are demanded of us and there is no time to think of what we must do or how we must do it. Dave, you will be missed by those that knew you but you will never be forgotten by any of us that wear "the badge"!

His life has come full circle, but we will remember him in the stories we tell to future generations, he will become part of our history and our legends. May the Wolf walk beside him for companionship, the Bear to give him strength, and the Majestic Eagle to give him flight on his journey. May the great spirit give strength to Linda to face the future. And help her to always walk in beauty.

"The Final Inspection" The policeman stood and faced his God, which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shining, just as brightly as his brass. "Step forward now, policeman. How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek? To My church have you been true?" The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No Lord. I guess I ain't. Because those who carry badges, can't always be a saint." "I've had to work most Sundays, and at times my talk was rough... and sometimes I've been violent because the streets are awful tough." "But I never took a penny, that wasn't mine to keep... though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills got just too steep." "And I never passed a cry for help, though at times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God forgive me, I wept unmanly tears." "I know I don't deserve a place among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fear." "If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand. I never expected or had too much, But, if you don't...I'll understand." There was silence all around the throne, where saints had often trod, as the policeman waited quietly for the judgement of his God. "Step forward now, policeman You've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on heaven's streets. You've done your time in hell."

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Mobilio Family. May you have peace knowing that he will be watching over you. Cherish the memories you have so they will always remain strong in your heart. Although I have never had the chance to meet you Linda and Luke, I will never forget you! Dave and I share a wonderful Aunt Marsha and Uncle Jim. My mother Kathy has told me many special stories of what a wonderful person Dave is. My heart aches for your family. I wish for your family strength in the days to come, courage for the road ahead of you and rainbows on your rainy days. My 4 year old son Shane said a special prayer for Luke this morning. He prayed that Luke's daddy will be able to play and visit with Shane's Angels...his dog Rusty and his Great Grandmother Tutu. I know the Angels are rejoicing to have Dave home with them. I believe the Angels and Dave are watching over you! We send our prayers and love to you~

Dave, fellow officer and brother.... I remember my first day on field training 4 years ago. It was a cold night in December and my FTO, Scott Capilla, told me we were going to meet up with two other officers. This was the first time I was to meet you and work with you for the next year and a half. The bond we had was special whether it was working the town of Red Bluff or going pig hunting at the Buttes. There were so many good times, it's hard to recall them all. Dave, I think one of my best memories is when you hit the crossing arm at the railroad tracks, boy did you hear from all of the boys on that one... I can only look forward to the times we will have together when I take the walk to heaven as you have done. The ultimate sacrifice! Dave you always will be in my heart and prayers and will forever be missed in the law enforcement community. Love, your Friend and beat partner - Jason.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends, and co-workers of David Mobilio. I wanted to share a poem I wrote. At the gates of heaven, I came to God and stood. I had questions on my mind, that I needed answers too. So before God I stood, and gazed upon His face. My questions were simple and to the point. Dear God I ask now that I'm gone, will my family be alright? Will my friends always remember me? Will my co-workers be safe from harm? Will the lesson's I taught be forgotten down the line? But most important God, how will my kids know me? What God said I never did expect. But His words of wisdom are true. Son, I know you have many questions. Questions about your friends and loved ones. But son you know all the answers. The answers lie within your heart. You will continue living among those down below, safe and imbedded in all their loving hearts. You know your wife and kids will be fine, things always have a way of falling into place. Your friends will always remember you, the stories they will tell. Your co-workers will always be safe, because they know where you'll be. The lesson's you taught cannot be forgotten, for they came from a loving heart. As for your kids My son. God paused a moment and smiled. My son, when your kids get older, they will ask questions about you, to your wife, family, friends, and co-workers. Your kids will know just who you are, through the stories they will tell about you. They'll be proud of you, and love you for all the self-less acts you carried out. So, you see My son, I did not have to tell you this. For you already knew. God placed His hand on my shoulder, and led me inside to a special place. Where I may watch over, all of you.

But most important God, how will my kids know me? What God said I never did expect. But His words of wisdom are true. Son, I know you have many questions. Questions about your friends and loved ones. But son you know all the answers. The answers lie within your heart. You will continue living among those down below, safe and imbedded in all their loving hearts. You know your wife and kids will be fine, things always have a way of falling into place. Your friends will always remember you, the stories they will tell. Your co-workers will always be safe, because they know where you'll be. The lesson's you taught cannot be forgotten, for they came from a loving heart. As for your kids My son. God paused a moment and smiled. My son, when your kids get older, they will ask questions about you, to your wife, family, friends, and co-workers. Your kids will know just who you are, through the stories they will tell about you. They'll be proud of you, and love you for all the self-less acts you carried out. So, you see My son, I did not have to tell you this. For you already knew. God placed His hand on my shoulder, and led me inside to a special place. Where I may watch over, all of you.

I'm very grateful for having the opportunity to work with Dave last spring with the local Law Enforcement Racquet Ball Tournament. It was a great time, a great event with a great bunch of guys. This is a horrible thing for Dave, his family and the community. I've seen so much love and concern from so many people pouring out for Dave, his wife, his son and fellow officers. We all miss him so very much and this hurts. My wish is that somehow, someway, something wonderful can emerge from this senseless tragedy.

Dear Mrs. Mobilo and the Mobilo Family, I just wanted to express my deepest sympathy to your family on your loss. I went to high school and college with Dave. I lived in the dorms with Dave at Craig Hall in Chico. When I heard the news I couldn't believe that someone could do something like that to such a great guy. Dave was a fun person to be around and was very sincere. I didn't know anyone that didn't like Dave. When I think of Dave I just laugh and think of how classic he was and how he made me laugh. I am still in disbelief about what has happened. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

The members of the Roseville Police Department share the grief of the Red Bluff community over the tragic loss of Officer Mobilio. In 1995 we lost Officer Mark White, who was gunned down in the lobby of our police department. At that time I wrote a poem honoring Marks memory. Although I did not personally know Officer Mobilio, I know what he stood for. In honor of Officer Mobilio's memory, I would like to share my poem with you. WHEN COPS CRY A policman's job is a dangerous one. They're honored by most, critized by some. The new last night was disturbing at best; another brave cop was laid to his rest. He left a wife, a child, and one on the way. How can they cope? What can we say? We stood at his graveside and "Taps" we did hear. His widow was clutching a flag drenched with tears. Lord hear our prayer as we mourn and we cry. Please let this brave man be the last cop to die.

We were all very excited for him and I heard him say that you should name him Otto for Otto Mobilio we all laughed at his joke, and we will miss him and his humor greatly. We can't believe that he is gone it shouldn't of been him it is really unbeleivibal and it seems like he was teaching me just yesterday even though it was 2 years ago and it seems like this is all a dream and its not real I WISH IT WAS JUST A DREAM.

Over time talking with people and even freinds I was asked why do you think so highly of those guys ( meaning some of the peace officers ). They would say " he's mean, always out to get someone ". I simply replyed that yes they do a there job to the best ability, and in person are the nicest sencure people I have ever met. only a couple weeks ago talking to the same people, she told me you know what actaully they are very nice, when pulled over we are givin warnings, and talked with and if they just care about us. Like we are part of there family and they are worried about us getting hurt. After this horrible iccendent, having mixed thoughts and feelings, this thought keeps coming back to me. It shows that everyone knew how wonderful the Law Enforcement is to this community. I will remeber Dave all the way up to the blue pants he wore to the gym everytime I saw him. But the community will remeber him, and will know how great of a person he was and won't take advantage of what he has done for them. I will be praying for Dave's family, freinds, and the communtiy, who has all be touched by this. He will be remebered forever.

There is a special place in heaven for people like Officer Mobilio, and a special place in hell for his murders. Officer Mobilio died while serving his community and nation, working to make his city a safer and better place to live. His death will only strengthen the resolve of other officers to carry on that mission.

I just received the teletype regarding the loss of Officer David Mobilio, It saddens me to hear the news. I understand all to well the pain you feel. In May 1997 I lost a close friend in an ambush on my watch. I wish I had words to comfort you, but there are really no words adeqaute enough. Take solace in knowing that, "Greater love hath mo man that this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." Officer Mobilio has demonstrated his love for others through his dedication to the community and paying the ultimate sacrifice. Red Bluff can be thankful they have caring and courageous officers like Dave. If I or my agency can be of assitance, feel free to call upon us. Due to our loss in 1997 we have a Lieutenant who is very well versed in the finacial and benefits for slain law enforcement officers. Also you will fiund that the police survivors group COPS are a great asset in this time of tragedy. My deepest sympathies to the family, the department and the community. Lt.

My thoughts are also with the other police officers in Red Bluff, I've always had a lot of respect for them. Dona Norton

Dear Linda & Family, I worked with Dave at the Dept. of Ed. as I am the secretary for the DARE program. The overwhelming grief and sorrow I felt upon hearing about Dave is something I won't soon forget. He was the best. He was a pill sometimes-hey he's a guy, he was sweet, he was extremely good at his job. Simply put, he was the best. His parents should be very proud of the great job they did raising him. My son wants to be in law enforcement. Dave is the standard to be met. All my love, prayers, and tears, Janice

I hope you will extend my sympathy to Dave's family. I lived with Dave in Chico in 1996, on Hazel Street with a third roommate named Colleen. Dave was a crack up. He used to put his already dry jeans in the dryer before he went dancing, so they'd be nice and tight. Once he took me out in the driveway to give me country music dance lessons, and when he flipped me I almost bit my tongue off. What I remember most about Dave was thinking he was lucky, because his family was so nice. His parents came to visit once and took us to Burger Hut. I was jelous because they were so friendly, and obviously proud of him. He used to tell me tales of the family's travels. He said his parents took he and his sister all over the world growing up. We lost touch eventually, and I wish I could tell his parents now how sorry I am. I never met his wife, but having a 1 year old and husband myself, I can't begin to imagine the loss she must feel. I hope this message makes it to them, so they know I enjoyed knowing and living with Dave. My deepest condolences, and I hope there is comfort in knowing your son was such a funny, likeable guy while he was in my life.

Officer Mobilio's watch has now begun with his new Commander and he is now armed with God's weaponry. May all Law Enforcement members and especially his family find peace. May the coward(s) responsible for this tragedy be without peace for eternity. My family and I share your grief and include you all in our prayers.

As a daughter of a dispatcher and have had been one myself I understand the bond between fellow officers, personell and families of these unities. I am heart broken for Dave Mobilio's family. Tears well up in my eyes just to imagine what she must be going through. I drove to work today just pondering the reason why this happened, Why to a good man who serves this community and keeps it safe, I can't find and answer. My prayers are for the family and friends of this brave Officer, Husband and Father. I can only hope that you will eventually find happiness again Mrs Mobilio and know that you have a guardian angel who will keep protecting you no matter what.

It is apparent by the messages left that Dave was a wonderful human being as well as an outstanding police officer. No amount of time on earth is ever enough for someone so loved and respected as Dave, no amount of time in hell is ever enough for someone so cowardly and evil as the animal who took his life. May God bless his family, friends and co-workers and watch carefully over him in Heaven.
