Gordon Beesley, who had been with the department for 19 years, was shot and killed yesterday in Arvada.
He was a school resource officer at Oberon Middle School and was working patrol while school was out for the summer.
He loved to spend time outdoors with family and friends. He played drums with a band and was also known for his mantra, "Look For The Good in Everyday."
