Reflections for Patrolman John R. Ogden

Patrolman Ogden,
On today, the 105th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Buffalo. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

John Ogden left his wife, Florence Rainey, and young daughter Elsie Ogden (my grandmother) in Sardinia, Ohio, and moved to Buffalo to find work about 1890. He returned in 1892 to take his family back with him, but Florence was caring for her elderly mother and refused. John started a new life in Buffalo, married Emma Gantner, a widow with three children. Grandmother Elsie told me many times how her mother said she should have gone with him, and she knew about his death when she was 22.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 99th 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.
