Patrolman Anderson was shot and killed by a man who held a grudge against him because of the zealous manner in which he discharged his duties. He told Patrolman Anderson that he would kill him if he ever bothered him again. A few nights later Patrolman Anderson warned him that he was in violation of a city ordinance for being seen on a public street after 9:00 p.m. with a prostitute. The man went home; got his pistol; found Patrolman Anderson standing on a street corner; knocked him to the ground; and shot him three times. The suspect surrendered to police a short time later.

He had served with the agency for 8 years and was survived by his wife and six children.

My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the 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.

Rest In Peace.
