Reflections for Trooper Vernon C. Rolfs

Rest in peace Trooper Rolfs.

Vernon Rolfs was my great grandfather. The man who killed him, James Leroy Fish, did die in prison, but not before being granted leave of prison and left to California and raped a young woman. He was sent back to his original prison where he died, but he was not in prison the whole time after killing Vernon.

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.
GOD Bless

Sir, although it's been so many years since you were laid to rest, know that you're not forgotten. Others have come after you and paid the ultimate sacrifice too. We thank you all for the service you provided to your communities. Officers and Troopers walk the line now. Prayers to those to stay safe and for you to rest in peace.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 59th 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.
