Arizona CHOIR BOYS

Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club

The mission of the Arizona Choir Boys Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club is to assist those families of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty or those law enforcement officers who were injured in the line of duty through club donations and fundraising efforts. While we concentrate on our mission, we enjoy the brotherhood of other law enforcement motorcycle clubs with enthusiasm and have a passion for riding motorcycles..

On Saturday, May 18th, we held the drawing for our gun raffle at Manual’s Mexican Restaurant.  Rob Kikkert won the Glock G-45 9mm Compact and Kathy Hoffman won the Glock G-48 9mm Slimline.  The AZ Choir Boys LEMC thanks everyone who made our gun raffle a great success!



On Wednesday, May 22, Jay Jacobs and I met Rob Kikkert and Bill Hoffman at the Scottsdale Gun Club to pick up their new handguns.  Kathy Hoffman was ill so Bill volunteered to pick the gun up for her.  Congratulations to Rob and Kathy!

With respect,

Arizona Choir Boys & Supporters,

On Monday, April 9, at 9:30 AM, Bill Fisher, Bob Gibbons and I met with Phoenix Police Officer Uribe, Employee Assistance Unit, at Phoenix Police Headquarters, to make our donation of $2,500 to the Rutherford family.  Officer Uribe told us the Rutherford family greatly appreciates our donation.

As you recall, this story began when Officer Rutherford was investigating a crash at 75th Avenue and Indian School on March 21, 2019.  He was on foot in the turn lane when a third vehicle, traveling at 50 mph in the turn lane, slammed into Officer Rutherford critically injuring him.  EMS responded to the scene and transported him to Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center in cri...

On Wednesday, August 22, Mike Batelli, Bill Fisher, Jay Jacobs, Bill Hoffman, Brian Hoyt, Bill Anderson, and Laura Mancino met with Debbie Edenhofer, Trooper Tyler Edenhofer’s mother, Trooper Darlin Dorris and his wife, and several members of the DPS command staff at the Public Safety building in Youngstown to present our donation to Mrs. Edenhofer and Trooper Dorris.  Mrs. Edenhofer and Trooper Dorris were both very appreciative of our donation.  As you may recall, this began on:

On Tuesday, August 21, Bill Fisher and I met with Phoenix Police Commander Martos, Officer Adrian Cruz, and his wife in the Intensive Care Unit at John C. Lincoln Medical Center.  Commander Martos contacted Bill Fisher the night before and asked him to make the donation in the ICU early the next morning.  ICU limits the number of visitors.  Officer Cruz still had an IV.  Officer Cruz and his wife were very appreciative of our donation.  As you recall, this incident began:

On Thursday, August 16, at approximately 8 PM, Phoenix Police Officer Adrian Cruz initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle traveling west bound on Cactus Road.  The vehicle continued westbound without any signs of sto...

On Thursday, August 23, AZ Choir Boys Mike Batelli, Brian Hoyt and I met with Pima County Sheriff Mark Napier, Deputy Jose Velasco, his wife, and several of his colleagues to present the club donation to Deputy Velasco.  Both Deputy Velasco and his wife were very appreciative.  Jose told us that when he was hit, the bullet entered his lower thigh and traveled up and through his thigh and came back out close to his groin.  Amazingly, the bullet did not strike a major artery or bone.  He told us he continues with physical therapy and he’s working hard so he can return to duty as a motor officer.  As you may recall, this incident began:

On Tuesday, July 17, at approximately 3...

Earlier today the Choir Boys of Arizona Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club met Border Patrol Agent Mike Meshirer who was shot multiple times and presented him with a check. Mikes story of the incident and his survival techniques as a paramedic is truly amazing! He is shown below holding his daughter during the presentation.

Members of the AZ Choir Boys Region 7, including Chingona, Grizz, Goat, Lou, Hawkeye, Adam Henry and Michelle as well as several members of Defiant Brotherhood attended the 4th Annual Chandler Fallen Officer Run. The run was started by now retired Chandler PD Motor Officer, Chip Sikes. The run is not a fundraiser and therefore was free to participate in. Families of fallen officers were in attendance and were thankful for the support shown them.

The ride started with a prayer and moment of silence. Some of the family members of Officers who died in the line of duty took a few moments to address us and again express their gratitude for acknowledging their loss. We left from Valley of the Sun Memori...

On Saturday, March 24th, at 10 AM, several Arizona Region 1 Choir Boys LEMC attended a fund raiser for Glendale Police Sergeant Robert “Kent” Livingston at Cabela’s in Glendale, AZ. There were several hundred supporters including many Glendale police officers and firefighters. We met with Glendale Police Sergeant Tiffany Smith at Glendale PD’s mobile command center. Sergeant Livingston was unable to attend today as he had been readmitted to the hospital with complications due to his gunshot wounds. Sergeant Smith planned to go to the hospital to see Sergeant Livingston and give him our donation after we left.

As you recall, on Friday, March 2, at approximately 10:30 AM, the United States Marshal...

Choir Boys from Arizona came together in support of a Maricopa County Sheriff's Deputy who is dealing with a horrific family tragedy.  A special ride and fundraiser for Maricopa Deputy Sgt. Steve Chervenak, whose wife and daughter were randomly run down while checking their mail was held at the Desert Ridge Sandbar.  His wife, Amy, died at the hospital and his 11-year-old daughter was critically hurt.

The fundraiser was held to raise funds for hospital, funeral and rehabilitation expenses for the family.  Gallery Pictures included.

On Tuesday, December 19, at 10 AM, several Choir Boys went to the El Mirage Police station for the club donation to Officer Paul Lazinsky’s family. Upon arrival, we met Police Chief Terry McDonald and Tammy Lazinsky, Paul’s wife, in a station conference room. Bill “Fish” Fisher presented our donation for $2,500 to Tammy. She was very grateful for our donation.

I want to thank Bill Fisher for scheduling and attending todays donation. I also want to thank Bill Hoffman, Chris Mays, and Maria Maldonado for attending today’s donation with me.

Please keep Officer Luzinsky’s family in your thoughts and prayers.

On Wednesday, November 29th, at approximately 7 PM, Amy Chervenak, 47 years old, and her 11 year old daughter, were walking down the sidewalk near their Phoenix home.  Trent Ferree, 45 years old, drove his pickup truck onto the sidewalk and struck Amy and her daughter from behind as they walked.  Witnesses told police that after striking the pair, Ferree backed up over Amy (crushing her) and then drove forward hitting her again.  Bystanders ran to Ferree, pulled him from his truck, and detained him until the police arrived.  

EMS responded to the scene and transported Amy and her daughter to a local hospital.  After arrival there, Amy died from her injuries. Chervenak's daughter remain...

On Saturday, November 18, at 1 PM, several Choir Boys went to the home of Pinetop Police Officer David Hummer for our club donation.  David, his wife Faye, and their four children met us outside as we arrived.  David showed us his wound to his right thigh and told us it was a through and through wound with no damage to the bone.  However, he is still experiencing some nerve damage.  Until then, he remains injured on duty status.  We thanked him for his service and gave him our donation.  He was very appreciative.

This all began on Sunday, October 9, at 10:12 PM, when Pinetop-Lakeside Police Officer David Hummer and other officers responded to the 1900 block of West Gardner Lane...

On Sunday, October 29, at 1 PM, several Choir Boys rode to the home of Phoenix Police Officer Adam Gjelhaug.  Adam’s wife greeted us and invited us into their home.  Adam was sitting on his

couch with his two sons nearby.  Adam uses a walker to get around.  Chris Mays gave Adam our donation.  Adam was very appreciative.  Adam faces at least five more weeks off duty.

Ron Minner asked Adam to tell us what happened and he told us the following.  On Saturday, October 21, at approximately 10:40 PM, Phoenix Police Motor Officer Adam Gjelhaug was traveling on McDowell Road on his police motorcycle when a full-sized pick truck turned left in front of him at
