Patrolman Weidner was succumbed to wounds sustained five days earlier when he was stabbed in front of a theatre on Main Street. An intoxicated man had been refused entry into the theatre because of his drunken condition. The man began to argue with the manager and attracted the attention of Patrolman Weidner, who was across the street at the time.

Upon seeing the argument Patrolman Weidner crossed the street. When he put his hand on the man's shoulder the man suddenly spun around and stabbed him in the abdomen with a large knife. Patrolman Weidner was taken to a local hospital where he underwent two operations and two blood transfusions. He died five days later.

Patrolman Weidner had been with the agency for 16 years and was survived by his wife, two children, father, and four siblings.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 89th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer. It is unfortunate that corruption was at the root cause of your death.

Rest In Peace
