Ttooper Pavatt,
On today, the 65th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the State of Arkansas. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 65th 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 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 remembered and revered.

Rest In Peace

Trooper Pavatt and his wife and young son were friends and neighbors to my parents in Mtn Home, AR. My mother has always spoke fondly of the friendship that they had. She tells stories of going to the roller skating rink, the lake, and taking baby Sidney for walks in the stroller. My parents always told me that Trooper Pavatt was a good police officer, and a good person. His memory still lives on.

Trooper Pavatt your picture hangs in my office as a daily reminder of the sacrifices made by Trooper before me that made the Arkansas State Police an honorable department to work for. Thank you for your service and the sacrifice you made for our department and the state of Arkansas.

Thanks, because my FTO told me most people won't challenge a trooper because the ones before us had already earned the respect.

Hello, I am the Troop Commander now for the area that Trooper Pavatt was killed. I have recently came into possession of the "slapper" that Trooper Pavatt was carrying when he was shot and killed just north of Summitt Arkansas. I would like to see this returned to the family and would like to get some contact information so we can exchange this item..
