Marshal Addison was shot and killed by a father seeking revenge for his son's arrest. Marshal Addison had arrested the teenager for a traffic violation after giving the boy a warning for the same violation the previous week. The boy's father found Marshal Addison near the town square and began an argument. The man suddenly pulled out a revolver and shot Marshal Addison in front of the marshal's wife. Marshal Addison was transported to Atkison Hospital where he died in surgery.

The suspect was convicted of Marshal Addison's murder and sentenced to life in prison on August 19, 1965. He was paroled on June 23, 1976.

Marshal Addison was survived by his wife and three children.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 49th anniversary year of your death.

Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

It is disgraceful that your murderer served only 11 years in prison before being paroled.

Rest In Peace.
