Officer Duross,
On today, the 58th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice- of just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Naval Construction Battalions during WW II as a Seabee. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Dear Dad,

Another year has passed, now it's 52 years.. Since that spring day, April 15, 1960. I miss you so much. We had very little time together. I was only 7 years old and Billy was 3 1/2. You now have your little brother Butts with you, so you can raise havoc on your wheels.
Make sure all your Highway Patrol Brothers are in a good formation. You know Mom knows the drill.
Until we meet again Dad. I love you .
Your loving Daughter

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 52nd 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.

I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace today. Thanks to your daughter for sharing her memories and devotion to you through her reflections.

Rest In Peace.

My Dearest Dad,
You have been gone from my life 50 years today. I was only
seven, but I knew the light went out of my life.. I miss you so much. I could not ask for a better Dad then you, if
only for seven short years.
Until we meet again may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
You are my Guardian Angel.

Your loving Daughter,

I remember Officer Duross from his days at Highway. I was a secretary and think he had a brother also on the force. I didn't know he died in service. I remember him teaching other officers how to ride precision drill for the Hero Scholarship Thrill Show. RIP.

To My Dad My Hero:
It has been 45 years since you left this earth and everyday I think of you.
You loved being a police officer, as much as you loved your family. You were proud to wear the uniform. To be a member of Highway Patrol to ride in the
Thrill Show from the first one until
your untimely death.
Dad you are still my Hero.
May we meet again someday.
