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 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.

You walked bravely into dangerous and uncertain circumstances. Such courage is not a one-time occurrence, so I can confidently say thank you for a life of extraordinary bravery and unselfish service. What a blessing to read the reflection from your grand niece. It is my honor to join her in remembering you, Patrolman Officer.

Dear Uncle John,

It saddens me that I never met you, you died before I was born. I'm sure there is a special place in heaven for those of you who sacrificed their lives to save others. Your brother, my grandfather, took over your beat when you died and remained there until he retired as a sign of his love for you. He is with you now. I went to the dedication of the police memorial to represent you and cried when they called your name. I feel a strong conection to you because my mother kept you alive by telling us about you and displaying your picture. She is also there with you, her favorite uncle. Please know that you still live in my heart.

I am sure you are not forgotten by your agency or your family. I have not forgotten you, even though I did not know you. I do know what you stood for. Rest in peace, Sir.
