Your heroism and service is honored today, the 94th 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.

Officer Ostby was, I believe, my great uncle. My daughter has been researching the family, and came upon this. I remember being told about him as a child, and his untimely death. I was never told any details, other than it involved a streetcar. I have other photos of him, and his children. It was purely coincidental that I entered law enforcement.
Thank you for honoring my uncle, and all officers who gave their life in the line of duty

I am Officer Ostby's great-great-niece. I wanted to show my respects and offer thanks to the Officer Down Memorial Page for remembering him, although he's been gone nearly a century.
