Scott Von Lanken Memorial Fund

On the evening of January 31st Scott was senselessly murdered while on duty working at Denver Union Station.  His life was truly dedicated to helping people.

Scott worked as pastor in various churches, as a police officer, and as an RTD(Regional Transportation District) security officer in Denver.  Scott started his career working as a police officer for the city of La Crosse in Wisconsin from 1978 until 1987. During his time as a police officer he met his wife of 35 years, Shellie who brought into this world 2 beautiful girls. Scott's love of humanity and passion to help people led him to leave his job as a police officer and turn toward the ministry becoming a pastor at various churches in Ohio, Colorado, and Arizona. Scott needed to earn more money to support his family and began working as a security officer on the RTD transit account. Scott was well respected among his coworkers as a leader, mentor, and confidant in their personal times of need. 

With this devastating change to their family, his wife Shellie and his two daughters are left without their provider. This fund was set up for anybody having difficulties donating to the primary fund at the Rocky Mountain Law Enforcement Federal Credit Union.
Any donations made will be given to the family to help cover any expenses that they have during this sudden change in their lives.
