Officer Sullivan was beaten to death when he tried to quell what was described in the police report at the time as a "disgraceful row" at Callowhill and Water streets. The group that assaulted him "had soaked themselves with whiskey obtained in the immediate vicinity."

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and thirty-ninth anniversary 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.

Rest In Peace.
