Reflections for Officer Connie Prock

I knew Connie As comrade in arms. We were in the same Air Police Squadron. Connie was the example for the rest of us to follow. He was Airman of the Month on more than one occasion. Someone to look up to. He is missed.

To all of those who knew Connie, I never met him but I knew his parents quit well as I attended church with them. I had heard bits and pieces of this tragity but not as much as I have learned here from the comments. I only knew Connie through the sadness on his mother's face when Connie's name was mentioned.
My son-in-law's father also worked at DVI and was also stabbed there. It was enough to force him to find another line of work. He now owns the barbor shop in Lincoln Center, Stockton CA.
I often think of the Procks.

Officer Prock,
On today, the 55th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the USAF. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Lord, when it’s time to go inside,
That place of steel and stone.
I pray that you will keep me safe,
So I won’t walk alone.
Help me to do my duty,
Please watch me on my rounds.
Amongst those perilous places
And slamming steel door sounds.
God, Keep my fellow Officers
Well and free from harm.
Let them know I’ll be there too,
Whenever there’s alarm.
Above all when I walk my beat,
No matter where I roam.
Let me go back whence I came,
To family and home.

RIP We have the watch now

For those who asked about the two inmates that killed CONNIE one only served I believe 10-15 years the other still locked up.

i remember Connie told me that i believe his grandmother was part Choctaw when we were in Okla,
i had to add more because i don't know why two inmates would stab to death such a nice guy that they hardly knew.. so sad to hear. hope they are both still locked up..

This is for Barbara and Sharon as well as T.S Harper. I am a distant realitve of Connie. I never got to know him as he was taken way before I was born. I wish I new him sounds as a very amazing man. I was at DVI when they had the memorial for him and other officer killed at DVI. I would like to know who did it or learn more about it. I would like to see if they are still in custody and if ever have chance of parole I will be at the hearing. I hope you all read it and I hear from someone.

Happy Valentine's Day by young sweetheart. Today I received news of a book with your name in it about the USAF military base where you were stationed in 1961-1962 known as Radar Hill, Ajo, Arizona. My book will be in my hands very soon. Loving you always.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 47th 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.

Your sacrifice was made so many years ago. Evil was, is, and will be a part of life just as goodness such as yours will also be present. What an enduring love your wife has had for you these many years.

Rest In Peace

Remembering today with a heavy heart. I will be 65 this week. You and I were just young sweethearts that only had one year and 11 days of happy marriage. I certainly hope the guys that took you from me are still behind bars. Love you always, Barb

We did not get to see each other very often because you were in CA and I was in OK, but I always knew you were a person of fine character and it broke my heart when you were killed. Unfortunately you were an only child and your Mother (my Mother's sister) never recovered. My Mother and your Mother passed away within 2 weeks of each other, but our family still has many fond memories of you.

On this day, 44 years ago, you paid the ultimate sacrifice. I am sure your family felt horrible sorrow as well as terrific pride. Thank you for bravely and proudly serving your community. You will always be a hero who will NEVER be forgotten!
