MAYWOOD – Senate Majority Leader Kimberly A. Lightford (D-Maywood) released the following statement following the tragic loss of childhood friend and retired Illinois State Trooper Greg Rieves this past weekend.

“Greg was the kind of person you never saw angry. He was a peacemaker who was always smiling. We have been friends since we were in kindergarten, and it feels like losing a brother. When he was in the Illinois State Police Academy, I was working on my Master’s at University of Illinois at Springfield, and I was so honored to have the opportunity to attend his graduation.”

“Our community and the Proviso East Class of ’86 is hurting in the loss of a local hero and inspiration. This tragedy has left us heartbroken, and we will honor our brother Trooper Greg Rieves’ legacy by coming together with love and support for one another. The entire Proviso East community bleeds blue for our fellow Pirate.”
“I wish the two injured troopers a safe and speedy recovery, and extend my deepest condolences to Greg’s family and friends.”
