Reflections for Police Officer Louis R. Kuba

 

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 45th 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 that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your family for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.

Rest in peace, Officer Kuba. Your service and sacrifice to the citizens of Houston and the great State of Texas are not forgotten.

My father, a fellow officer survived that day. It left a lasting impression on him and bonded him to his "brothers" in a way only you could understand.
He is gone now too - I wish you both peace and thatnk you for your service.

Today my brother you would be 70 years old. The family misses you and we talk of you so often. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you and the sacrifice that you made for us all. Mom is now 102 and is doing good and I know that dad is with you and that is comforting for us. I love you and miss you so much.

Today is your birthday Uncle Louis. We awoke today not remembering but something reminded us. How can I miss someone I’ve never known? The story’s I’ve heard over the years turned you into a hero in my eyes. You are not forgotten and will never be forgotten. Your picture still hangs at my grandmother’s house (your mother) who is now 102 years old. As the youngest grandchild and the youngest child of your youngest brother (Andrew Kuba), I am 25 years old. Although, we have never met you will always be in my prayers.

Officer Kuba,

Today I honor you for the sacrifice you made for the people

The 40th anniversary of your passing was last week and your family remembered. We remember every year. I just wish we would be celebrating your birthday instead of your passing.

Coincidentally, you were the first one to be portrayed after I had just left one of your brother officers from your department a reflection who was just taken from us yesterday, 09-21-2006, in the same tragic way as you. As I said to him,you are a hero and a hero never dies. Thirty nine years later and you will always be remembered.

My dear sweet brother, today is your 39th anniversary of your death. You are missed every day. We talk about you all the time and I have told my son and daughter about the special person you were. My precious husband is now with you and Dad in heaven and you now know the great man I married. The Lord said to keep the faith and that is the way we all carry on until we see you all again. I Love You and miss you. Loving memories and God's Blessings.
Your Sis

I was born on July 3, 1974 and never knew my uncle, but I will never forget him. My mother (Louis Kuba's sister), has made sure that I knew at least a little of the man he was. And yes, you guessed it, my middle name is in honor of him. But it does no end there. I have recently had a son, James Louis Dooley. James, in honor of my recently deceased father, and Louis, in honor of the uncle I have never known.
There is a lot about Louis R. Kuba that is not mentioned on this site. He was married and had an unborn daughter (who is now married & has a daughter of her own) at the time of his death. He also had a large number of brothers and sisters, 5 brothers & 4 sisters. His mother is still alive and his father passed away in 2002.
He would either 63 or approaching 64 years of age by now, if he had lived. I wish that I had know him and talked with him, as I have my other aunts & uncles. I often wonder what he would be like today. He was a man taken too soon and he is sorely missed by his loved ones... even those who have never met him.

Officer Kuba, rest in peace. We will never forget you.
