Reflections for Police Officer Robert Rowland Allshaw

Bob and I grew up together and I remember when we bought this rusted out very old car, I think it was a Pontiac. Although this was a long time ago, I still think of him often. I remember he came to see me one day returning from deployment dressed in his full uniform. I was so happy to see him again and so very proud of him. It was a long time ago, but you never forget a close friend.

I was best friends with Roberts daughter Terrilynn. We both lost our dads in 68 but hers was so tragic. I remember the funeral well and am glad his memory lives on.

I was an active member of the youth drill team that Mr. Allshaw and Mr. Pat Lui directed. Mr. Allshaw was a great leader and example for all of us, and we all looked up to him. I can remember fondly him barking out orders while a cigarette was hanging out of his mouth. He was very kind. I vividly remember that day, as well as our participation in his funeral.
After 43 years, Mr. Allshaw, you are still with us.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 43rd 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.

Rest In Peace

Today, Nov 1, 2009, we mourn the loss of fallen Seattle Police Officer Timothy Brenton. It is at this time, I reflect and think of you Uncle Bob. Though I was just a child when you were tragically taken away, I will always remember you as my first hero.

What a terrible burden for that other officer to have to carry. Accident or not,
it is still a tragedy. Thanks for serving the Emerald city and the Evergreen State.
