I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of my Good Friend, Mentor, and Brother, Illinois State Conservation Police Officer 11,  Calvin D. Liehr.
My sincere and heartfelt sympathies to Greg, Pam, and the Liehr Family.
Calvin was an "Excellent", Illinois State Conservation Police Officer who was dedicated to the preservation and protection of the Natural Resources he loved so much.
In the late 1960's, or early 1970's, while working a Illegal "Spring Duck" hunting detail in Pike County, near Rockport, Illinois. Working together with U.S.F.W.S. Special Agent, (Federal Game Warden), Vic Blazevic. Calvin, and Agent Blazevic were assaulted by the Spring Duck Shooters resulting in Agent Blazevic being shot in the head and face area by buckshot pellets from a shotgun blast fired one of the violator's as the violator's tried to flea the scene, and elude the wounded, and pursuing Officer's, Liehr and Blazevic. Agent Blazevic received serious and permanent injuries as a result of this shooting. The Violator's were apprehended, convicted, and appropriately served time in a Federal Prison accordingly.
Calvin was selected to serve on the Department's, Special, Boating Enforcement "TASK FORCE". The Boating Enforcement "Task Force", (Two Man Teams), traveled the State of Illinois and vigorously enforced the provisions of the Illinois Boat Registration and Safety Act on Illinois Waterways.
Calvin dearly loved his lovely Wife "Miss Margie", his Son Greg, Daughter Pam, his Grandchildren, and his Family.

                Rest in Peace Brother Calvin.
     Respectfully,  John R. "HONKER" Hendricks
     Retired: Illinois State Conservation Police Sergeant
                   Retired Badge No. 145

Calvin was a joy to drink coffee and share with. He told me every day how much he missed his wife, how he disliked controversy and folks talking down to others.  He loved his family so much. This was truly one of the finest men I have ever meet. RUP Calvin. Will see you again.
