RIP--SJPD Officer John Cahill

My friend John Cahill, officer with San Jose Police Department, passed away yesterday.

I remember talking with John just a few weeks ago over a pool game at Donna Lind's house along with Bruce Lindsay. I had no idea that just a short time later this awesome person would be gone.

It makes you think about the people in your life--and about your priorities. All of the problems in your life pale in comparison to not having a life at all.

John Cahill's Memorial Service is this Tuesday (Dec 9th) at 11 a.m. at San Augustine Church on Glenwood Drive in Scotts Valley. Scotts Valley Police Department Lt. John Hohmann and retired sergeant Bruce Lindsay are coordinating the details. John's family is requesting donations be made to the Fallen Officer Foundation in John's name.

Do you know which funeral home is coordinating arrangements?
Thank you.

Not sure exactly which funeral home is doing the coordination. The folks at Scotts Valley Police Department would probably know:

(831) 440-5670

I just found out about John!

I am just so upset and crying in front of my computer......he was such an awesome person and I have many wonderful memories of his smile and outgoing personality. I knew him in high school. He will live forever in my heart. Debra Hiebert
