Officer Chesmore was shot and killed while transporting two juvenile suspects back to Duluth from Superior, Wisconsin, on a train. He was sitting with the two suspects and, when he was distracted, one of the suspects shot him. The two fled but were apprehended again and sent to prison. One of the suspects died in prison of tuberculosis and the other died of the same disease shortly after being released to his parents.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and first 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.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.
