Richard was married to my sister. He was a wonderful husband to Dixie, father to Jenny, and stepfather to Vickie. His fellow officers spoke highly of him. I remember he was particularly careful to Polish his boots, helmet and tank on his bike to a very high shine. After being raised on stories of his Uncle Richard, my son is now a LEO with San Francisco PD.

Richard was my brother in law. He was a wonderful husband and father. Besides his 4 year old daughter and wife, he left a step daughter, Vickie. His fellow officers spoke very highly of him. He always polished his boots and helmet to a high sheen. My son is a LEO in San Francisco, in part, because of stories I told him about his Uncle Richard.

Richard G Woods was my Dad and I just saw this web page as I was doing a paper for School. I work as a Psych nurse with the Criminally insane through my journey of trying to be a CHP officer to follow in his footsteps this is were I ended up. I was born in 1968 and lost my dad with no memory of him but love all the beautiful things I have heard about him and his pictures all over my home. I would love to talk with you Jim Young and would love to have my fathers jacket. As you probably know his wallet gun badge and several belonging were stolen off his body as he laid dying. I do have his replacement badge.

I think of Rich often. We attended the CHP Acdemy together and were good friends as well as partners. After his EOW, his family presented me with his motorcyle jacket and I was honored to wear it while assigned to motors. Rich was a great partner and an honorable man that served the citizens of California proudly. Unfortunately, over the years I lost touch with his daughters. I still possess Rich's motorcyle jacket and would be pleased to pass it onto the family. Girls, don't hesitate to contact me.

Rich, you will always be remembered my friend.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the forty-first anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service to my home state and the birthplace of my son. 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.
