Officer O'Connor,
Sir, even though it has been 57 years since your End of Watch you are still honored and remembered. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the state of Oregon. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Uncle Dick, I never was able to meet you because someone took you from us too soon. I have admired you throughout my career in Law Enforcement and will forever honor your service.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 56th 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.
