U.S. Representative Ron Estes Tuesday night took time on the U.S. House floor to pay his respects to fallen Sedgwick County Sheriff's Deputy Robert Kunze.

Estes spoke before his colleagues next to a picture of Kunze and asked them to join him for a moment of silence to honor the deputy recognized as a hero for the final action he took to save others.

"At his funeral on Friday Alicia (Kunze's daughter) addressed the crowd with the words that ran across Kansas, saying 'my dad was a hero,'" Estes said. "He protected everyone. Today, we continue to pray for Deputy Kunze's family as well as Sheriff Jeff Easter and the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office."
