Reflections for Sergeant Robert Emmett Moran

Sergeant Moran,

You were my mother, Elizabeth Brown 's God father and the best friend of my grandfather OJ Brown.

I was in police work for most of 40 years including service as the Decatur, Illinois, Police Chief.
Rest in peace, you did your duty

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 78th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

Robert Moran was my grandfather. Just yesterday we read the story of his last days on this earth published in a book called "Officer Down" written by Norman V. Kelly. The book recaps each officer in the state of Illinois that has been killed in the line of duty.

It saddens me to know that my father who is a wonderful man grew up without a father as he was only 3 years old when his father was taken from him.

My Grampa was indeed a hero in my eyes and he would be proud of the legacy that he left on this earth.

Each day I try to read the ODMP. Today I read your story. Any officer who dies in the line of duty will always be remembered for his sacrifice. You died a hero. Rest in peace Sgt. Moran.
