Deputy Marshal Fields was shot and killed near Eufaula, Oklahoma, while he and another deputy marshal attempted to serve a warrant on a man for stealing from a railroad boxcar. As the marshals rode up to a camp they recognized the man. The suspect suddenly grabbed a shotgun and opened fire, fatally wounding Deputy Marshal Fields. The other marshal returned fire and wounded the suspect, who was then arrested.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 122nd 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 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.
