Just a short time ago, one of Lawrenceburg’s finest, Officer Kenny Goodlett passed away. Our community fell with a heavy heart, the loss of a man that touch everyone in Lawrenceburg. Today, his wife, Debbie has written a thank you to everyone in the community and beyond…


The family of the late Kenny Goodlett sincerely thanks all family and friends for their support, prayers,flowers, visits, cards, donations, food, and phone calls after his recent passing.

During the days of his illness and weeks following his passing, we have been truly blessed with such an outpouring of love and support. We would like to extend a special thank you to the members of our community who expressed your support in so many ways. Thank you to those who brought food and gave monetary donations on behalf of Kenny at the benefit organized by Dude and Eddie. Thanks to all who supported the Lawrenceburg Police Department Relay for Life team by purchasing a shirt, decal, or bracelet in honor of Unit 132.

Thank you to all those who remembered and honored Kenny by attending his service. A sincere thank you goes to Gash Memorial Chapel for organizing Kenny’s full police honor service and to Bro. Noal Cotton Jr. and Bro. Jamie Chesser for their words of comfort. Thank you to Sand Spring Baptist Church for their hospitality during and after the funeral services. A heartfelt thank you goes to all First Responders who showed respect to one of their own “brothers.” Your response in the early morning hours from the hospital, through the funeral and graveside honors, left a heartwarming memory to all.

It is during these difficult times that we see how lucky we are to have been blessed to be a part of a loving community. Your display of respect was seen and felt in the hospital, around the house, and along the streets of downtown Lawrenceburg during his last patrol around the city. Kenny loved the people of Lawrenceburg and Anderson County and it was an honor for him to “Protect and Serve.”
