Your heroism and service is honored today, the 57th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was murdered on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace

I was not their, but I am told that Deputy Philips made a mistake that day that got him killed. Because of this, the sheriff at the time began a mission to build a state law enforcement academy. Some time later that same sheriff saw another officer in a similar situation to Deputy Philips react in such a way that the officer was able to sucessfully capture the subject. For that Officers life and the lives of every other Officer that was saved by the training given them, we salute you Deputy. Rest easy, your work is done.
God keep.
