Your heroism and service is honored today, the 49th 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 who was murdered in the 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.

I never got to meet the father of my father, his image lives on through memory. He was a great man because he had a great son my dad. He died a hero he is remembered as a hero

I did not know Sergeant Adams but I was working in 13th Prct as an observer still in the academy. Our car was the first at the scene. It was the first officer I ever saw shot to death and the first time I saw a police officer cry. It was an exceptionally warm night for March. The man that killed him was released from Prison just before I retired.(1988) He came home and shot his wife and then killed himself.
