THE STORY:

To Louis A. Dirker II, what mattered most in his four decades of a law enforcement career was not that he was a police chief in two cities. "The thing I am most proud of is where I come from and that I'm first and foremost a police officer," he told the Stow Sentry just days before he retired as Stow's police chief on June 1, 2014. Mr. Dirker died Feb. 6 after battling cancer. He was 67. Services were set to take place Feb. 12. Mr. Dirker, who served as Cuyahoga Falls' police chief from 1999 to 2001 before leading Stow's department from 2003 to 2014, is survived by Miriam, his wife of 46 years; children, Louis, Kurt, Erik, Rosemarie, Craig,and Brett; and 15 grandchildren, with a 16th on the way. "I am so thankful for Chief Dirker's service to the city of Stow and law enforcement efforts countywide," said Stow Mayor Sara Drew. "He cared deeply about people and made a positive difference in the lives of many co-workers and community members. I believe he felt law enforcement was his calling and his passion. His commitment to justice showed in his efforts every day.
