Officer William Overton was killed in an accident as he was responding to shooting call with lights and siren. Another vehicle cut him off and in order to avoid striking that car he swerved into the median, causing his patrol car to overturn three times. The shooting call turned out to be a false alarm.

Officer Overton had been with the agency for seven years and was survived by his two sons, two daughters and parents.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 19th anniversary year 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.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Thanks to your family for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections.
