In 2006 I was contacted by Major Regis Phelan whose father was your brother. He asked if the Northwest District could have a 50 year memorial service to honor his uncle. Of course I was more than happy to have the service. After the service I spoke with Major Phelan's father who told me that the night that his brother was killed the Lieutenant on duty in the Northwest was Lt. Spicer. It was an erie feeling as I was the Lieutenant holding the memorial and I am Lt. Spicer. Rest in peace.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 57th 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.

We ask Thy blessings and eternal rest to all our brothers and sisters
Who have sacrificed their very lives in the performance of
their duties. Give their loved ones the peace and
Strength to bear the anguish of their loss. Remove all
resentment from their hearts, knowing that eternal
peace and rest will abide their departed loved ones
forever. This we beg, Thy name forever and ever,
