Remembering Sergeant Wesley Rosette

Please take a moment to include Wesley Rosette in your thoughts today.

Sergeant Wesley Rosette was killed near Price, Utah in a collision with two trucks January 31, 1951. Rosette and Grand Junction Sheriff E. E. Redmon were en route to pick up a prisoner for return to Colorado. They met an eastbound truck passing another eastbound truck. The passing truck cut in too soon and struck the other truck, which swerved in front of the oncoming Sheriff’s car. The Sheriff was injured, but survived. Rosette was killed instantly.

Rosette entered the Patrol July 18, 1936.
