Reflections for Patrolman Anthony Oetheimer

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 63rd 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 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 am sure that you were proud that your cousin Det. Bill Jewtraw continued your legacy of protecting and serving. Rest In Peace.

Though I never knew him, he was part of my Law Enforcement family and I will mourn this deep loss the rest of my life. My heart aches with all the losses we have suffered, and continue to suffer, through the years. God is our only peace in such incidents & our only real comfort comes from Him. May His strength, comfort & peace continue to be the sustaining force in the lives of all who knew this beloved officer; and may it somehow help to know that, even after all these years,they do not grieve alone.

Tony,

As you know, your cousin Bill has passed on, and I'm sure that the two of you are having a great time swapping old NYPD war stories while you watch over all the heroes waling the streets today.

God bless you both.

Every coworker and family member can be most proud to know that Officer Oetheimer's actions were a true testament of his character. I salute you for your bravery. May you rest in peace in a special place. May your bravery, commitment and sacrifice never be forgotten! AC

TONY: YOU WERE THE COUSIN THAT I NEVER REALLY GOT TO KNOW. I WAS ONLY 9 YEARS OLD WHEN FATE TOOK YOU ON THAT SUBWAY PLATFORM IN ASTORIA. AGAIN AS FATE WOULD HAVE IT I BECAME ONE OF NEW YORKS FINEST AND WAS ASSIGNED TO THE 114 PCT. IN ASTORIA. WHEN I FIRST ENTERED THE OLD 114 PCT MY EYES CAUGHT THE PLAQUE DEDICATED TO YOU. I TOUCHED IT AND REMBERED THE DAY YOU WERE BURED AND NOW I WAS IN THE HOUSE YOU ENTERED MANY TIMES. I NEVER TOLD ANYONE THAT YOU WERE MY COUSIN,NOT THAT I WAS ASHAMED OF YOU,BUT IT WAS KIND OF A PERSONAL BOND BETWEEN YOU AND ME. WE MOVED TO A NEW HOUSE ON ASTORIA BLVD. AND YOUR PLAQUE IS SEEN BY ALL WHO ENTER THE 114 PCT.THANK GOD NO OTHER PLAQUES HANG ON YOUR WALL AND I HOPE NEVER WILL. SOME DAY WE WILL MEET AND ILL GET TO KNOW YOU MUCH BETTER,UNTIL THAT DAY YOU ARE IN MY PRAYERS EVERY DAY AND NEVER WILL YOU BE FORGOTTEN.
