Welcome to the Ohio State Highway Patrol Retirees' Association's website. It is designed to serve as a communications link by providing information and services to Association members, current Ohio State Highway Patrol employees, other law enforcement personnel and the public at large.

The "Public", or open access area of the site, includes information about the Association, History of the Patrol, links to other sites related to the Retirees' Association and Upcoming Social Activities.

The "Members Only" area of the website is accessible by Association members through the use of a password. This area includes information on the illness of members, the death of a member or immediate family, meeting notes and other important announcements. 

We are proud of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, our Association, and retirees of the Patrol. We consider them to be the best group of people anywhere to associate with!

Our Prayer List 
for our friends in distress (Updated 5/17)  

Many of those in our patrol family, or their family members, are suffering through the hardships of cancer treatments or other life threatening illnesses.  A complete prayer list of our friends in distress can be found on the Member's Page. 

Rudy Yokum, husband of SHPFCU Linda Yokum is being treated for lung and brain cancer.  He was recently admitted to Riverside Hospital, undergoing chemo treatments. 

Retired Sergeant Sid Stark continues his recovery at his home after receiving treatments for lung cancer.  Sid recently advised that the treatments have been successful, improving the condition of his lungs.  CT scans will be conducted every three months. 

Retired DX Clerk Mary Blevins recently suffered a broken hip and is recovering at her home.

Retired Major Denny Bueno was recently hospitalized for 4 days for a variety of serious health issues.  A CT scan and lung biopsy revealed that his treatments have been successful and he is on the road to recovery.

Information to send cards of encouragement can be found on the Member's page. Prayers are always encouraged and appreciated. If there are others in our patrol family that are in some type of distress or difficulty please let us know so we can add them to our prayer list.
