To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 91rst anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. 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.

Chief Reitz, on this 84th anniversary of your murder, I simply wish to say thank you for putting the life of another above your own. No union action ever justifies murder and I pray that those thugs who called themselves ‘union workers’ received the justice they so richly deserved.

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