Reflections for Inspector William E. Payne

I am proud to call you my great-grandfather. Generations later, your legacy continues to inspire respect for law enforcement officers and gratitude for the sacrifices they make. My husband is a law enforcement officer, so your sacrifice is never far from my mind. Thank you for your service.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 93rd 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered. How wonderful that your family is able to share their admiration for you on this site.

Rest In Peace.
