Patrolman Pelissier,
On today, the 90th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Hadley.

Now 89 years have passed since you left this life. My daughter graduated from UMass/Amherst, hence, I traveled that road many times over the past few years, and for years prior as well. It's a beautiful ride and though the road can be hectic as all hell, it's no worse than some others in the Boston area.

In 1930, it was vastly different, no doubt. How tragic that one confused old man could not only end your life, but his own in the process. Tragic to say the least. But you died serving the public and assisting a family in need. It's no consolation to those who feel your loss, but you died a true hero and I respect you immensely for that.

God Bless you, Patrolman Pelissier and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 82nd 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 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

Patrolman Pelissier,
On today, the 77th anniversary of your death, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Hadley.

Today marks the 76th anniversary of your sad death. Hadley is a lovely small town and I would venture a guess that in 1930 the loss of one cop meant the loss of a large part of the department. The loss of one cop is the loss of a large part of all of us, no matter how long ago that loss may have occurred. Your family grieved for you then, as did the Hadley Police Department. We still grieve as members of your extended family.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
