Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 92nd 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 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.

This man is truly an honor to be related to. Although I never knew him he left us with my Great Grandmother whom I was blessed to have been able to become so close to until my 25th year. She was 6 when William left us but that is more than enough time to have made her some of what she was and that is a remarkable person. I will be 30 this year. I can only hope that I have made as much a positive impression on this world at this point in my life. See you on the other side.

I had never met him, I was born 1977, but I bet that he was a man of Integrity, Duty, and Selflessness.He is still an inspiring Grand-parent to this day....
