I was so pleased to see this memorial as Rupert Shepaerd was my grandfather. I did a Internet search to find out more information about his and found him recognized here and in 2013. I am so touched.

I would love to hear from anyone who knew Rupert.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 83rd anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. 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.
