Police Chief John Brown was killed when his car collided with a bus which had stopped for a tree that had blown over in the highway. Chief Brown was responding to a rural area near Green's Crossroads in Bertie County, which a tornado had just devastated. Three other people were killed as a result of the storm.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 73rd 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.

Time never diminishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.
