Reflections for Federal Prohibition Agent John Van Waters

 

"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God."
Matthew 5:9

I never met John Van Waters. He was my grandfather. I never knew that this murder took away my granddad's father. He never spoke of it.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 88th 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.

Rest In Peace

Special Agent Waters, on this 86th anniversary of your brutal murder I wish to thank you for being a hero and working hard for the benefit of all Americans in your duties. Many people view the moonshiner as a hard working throwback to simpler times when in fact, many who produced that stuff produced poison that was capable of causing blindness, brain damage and death. With no regulations, they could manufacture their product with any material at hand. You and Constable Crenshaw gave your lives in order to potentially save the lives of others. You have not been forgotten.

May you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother and God Bless you.
