Special Deputy Gunter was killed in an automobile accident while driving a prisoner's car to the jail. He and his partner had just arrested two escaped bank robbery suspects. The partner was transporting the two suspects to the jail in the police car and Special Deputy Gunter was following in the suspect's car. The other deputy suddenly slammed on the brakes of the police car and Special Deputy Gunter slammed into the back of the car, causing serious injuries. He succumbed to his injuries the following day.

Special Deputy Gunter had been with the agency for six years and was survived by his wife and six children.

Your heroism and service is honored today on the 78th 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 the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer. He was shot twice when ambushed on April 23rd when he was on a foot pursuit of two bank robbers. Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.
