The Monrovia Police Officers' Association expresses it's deepest condolences to the family of Officer Kenyon Youngstrom. Officer Youngstrom was a 7 year veteran of the California Highway Patrol assigned to the Contra Costa area. He was a married father of four children.
On September 4th, Officer Youngstrom was shot in the head during a traffic stop by a motorist, Christopher Boon Lacy. Officer Youngstrom's patrol partner was able to shoot and kill Lacy.
Officer Youngstrom was an organ donor. As he did in life, he is able to serve his fellow mankind thru the gift of giving of his organs. A 29-year-old mother received Youngstrom's left kidney and pancreas; a 52-year old woman received the officer's other kidney; a 63-year-old woman received Youngstrom's liver, and a 50-year-old married father of four who lives in Southern California received Youngstrom's heart.
God Speed Officer Youngstrom.
