Reflections for Detective Patrolman Patrick J. O'Neill

You are a true legend in our family. However, as we age, there are fewer of us to keep your memory alive. Therefore, I am so pleased that this is available. My mom, you youngest daughter, was only four when you were killed. How sad she never really got to know her dad! She turned out pretty A-OK. May you all rest in peace.

Grand daughter of Patrick J. O'Neill

Your heroism and service is honored today, the ninety-first 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.

It is infuriating that your killer escaped from prison and apparently lived decades as a free man. God is the final arbitrer of justice and he is answerable to death.

Rest In Peace.

Patrick J. O'Neill was my great grandfather. He died much too young, but his blood line has advanced another five generations and his memory is still alive.
