George Saville was my grandfather. My mother, Beverly, was eleven years old when the knock at the door came. She only talked about that day once and said her mother refused to go to the murder trial. My grandfather served in WWI as his father served in the Civil War. I was taught to respect the police as their service gives us peace and safety. You are remembered and so is the sacrifices my grandmother Verna Plumhoff Saville made with her two young children.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 78th anniversary of your death. I am privileged 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.

I am the granddaughter of Captain G A "Dick" Saville. My father, Donald Saville was 5 or 6 years old at the time of his father's death. We learned the details of the incident from a diary kept by my dad's aunt or cousin. The cause of his death was listed as cerebral hemmorage. The death of my Grandfather was so traumatic for my Grandmother that she never spoke of it.

We appreciate the respect and remembrances of our loved one, even though we never knew him. I may be able to provide a picture if there is a place for one.

Captain Saville was the son of a civil war volunteer with whom he lived into his adult years. It's easy to see how he inherited patriotism and self sacrifice, and I'm proud to have someone of such character in the family.

Though not a direct descendent, memory of George Arkley "Dick" Saville will be passed with to my descendents with utmost respect.
