Little Boy Honors His Fallen Father In The Most Touching Way Possible

Little 9-year-old Ethan Vincent’s hero growing up was his policeman dad. He was always willing to help people in their community, and his lesson to his son was to do the right thing.

So when Ethan’s dad, Senior Trooper Steven Vincent, was killed during a routine traffic stop, little Ethan was devastated. The whole community grieved together at the loss of what many people called the senseless killing of an honorable police officer, a great father, and an all-around “awesome guy” to anyone that came in contact with him.

But with Vincent’s untimely passing, his grieving widow wanted to do something special to honor his memory. That’s when she contacted photgrapher April Reeves, and after taking some shots of little Ethan holding his father’s flag and wearing his hat, April knew she wanted to add a special touch to the photos.

Using the help of Vincent’s brothers in blue, she managed to surprise the grieving family in the most touching way possible.

Scroll through the photos below, by the time you reach the end, you may have a tear in your eye….

Reeves was moved by how proud the Ethan was of his dad. “I truly hope that when he is older he is as happy to have these treasures as I was to capture them for him.” she posted on her Facebook page.


This child is amazing, strong, and so very proud of his dad”



This boy was just so proud of his dad. He had honest pride whenever he got the opportunity to place his father’s hat on his head.


But when the grieving family saw the next few photos, they were stunned… April had superimposed images of fallen officer Vincent, making the series of photos even more heartbreaking and beautiful.

A special thank you to all of the brave law enforcement who put their lives on the line every day.


Let’s keep this family in our hearts and prayers over these next few months. Though his Dad may be gone, he’ll never be forgotten.
