To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 47th anniversary year 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

I was 16 years old, watching Johnny Carson when a news flash came on. They showed “Uncle Harry’s” photo (Harry's wife Esther, was my father’s cousin) photo and said he had been killed during a robbery. My parents weren't home, so I called my godfather, Vernon Speckert, Esther's brother, who was also a St. Louis Police Department Sergeant and he confirmed it. I ran to the door when my parents came home to tell them. I remember the shock and sadness in the weeks that followed. I don’t think Esther ever got over it. I have always been proud to say that I had two family members on the police force. They were both heroes to me.

To the family and friends of Officer Harry Oebles and my many friends at the St. Louis Police Department, you have my deepest sympathy for your loss.
This incident may have happened many years ago but I rememeber these events quite well as Harry and my father had been good friends for many years.
Harry's death weighed heavily upon my father and he spoke of it often and with great sadness to my brother and me.
We should all feel some measure of comfort in the knowledge that Harry has rested easy and that he has been in the company of many good men - our other fallen brothers.
I am certain that they are all up there looking down after all of us who continued on with Harry's work and have often felt their presence in moments of danger during my own law enforcement career.
