Actor / LAPD officer Ken Osmond (aka Eddie Haskell of the “Leave It To Beaver’ show) dies at the age of 76
Today another LAPD colleague died. Actor Ken Osmond, aka Eddie Haskell of the Leave It To Beaver show, died in his home at the age of 76. America came to know Osmond through their black and white television screens as seen in TV shows and movies such as So Big, the Good Morning Miss Dove, Everything But the Truth, The Loretta Young Show, The Walter Winchell File, Fury, Lassie, Wagon Train, The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, and of course Eddie Haskell on Leave It To Beaver.
After Osmond’s acting career he was hired by the Los Angeles Police Dept., where he graduated with the academy class of 5/70. Osmond had been in many near-death situations and continued to suffer from those injuries (some of them are mentioned in the below video), and he subsequently retired in 1988. Upon his retirement Osmond was working Central Traffic Division (CTD), and I was working on a gang suppression task force in Operations South Bureau (OSB).
I do not know if Osmond was born-again or not. But one thing is for sure, he knows now where his soul will spend eternity. If you want to know more about what happens after death, please read my Gospel tract here. By God’s grace, over the years I’ve had the privilege of personally sharing the Gospel with thousands of police officers, perhaps this blog post will be used to share the Good News of the Gospel via the internet, and Lord willing I hope to attend his funeral.
As I’ve said before, You may have put your uniform on this morning, but a mortician may remove it tonight. Are you ready to meet your Maker?
As another said, “you won’t be able to badge your way into heaven, and you most certainly won’t be able to badge your way out of hell.”
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
