I was in school (Portsmouth Notre Dame) when Sheriff Justice was killed. My father, Roger Willis Sr. was a Special Deputy for Sheriff Justice. My dad, myself and brothers put up election signs for Sheriff Justice. I have (2) sons who are Sergeants at the Macomb County Sheriff Department in Macomb County, Michigan. No law enforcement is assured that he or she will go home at the end of shift. May all the fallen REST IN PEACE.

I am related to Sheriff Justice. He was my grandfathers cousin. From what I have heard, He was a great man and cared more about the people he protected than anything on earth. Wish I would have been able to meet you. Rest In Peace.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 54th 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.
