Patrolman Zimmerman succumbed to injuries received nine days earlier when he was struck by a vehicle. He had parked his cruiser on the street and proceded to cross to the opposite side to conduct checks on local businesses. While standing on the double yellow lines in the roadway he was struck by a truck and knocked into the path of an oncoming car. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries nine days later after never regaining consciousness.
Patrolman Zimmerman had received five departmental citations and had been named Officer of the Year by a civic association before the accident. He had been with the agency for 18 years.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 23rd 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.

Rest In Peace
