On today, the 130th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served during WW I. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 83rd 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.

Trooper Schwartz, you were my great uncle, and though you died 31 years before I was born, I definitely think about you and wish I had been able to know you. My Aunt Bonnie found this old photo of you standing next to your motorcyle among our Great Aunt Anne's things. The date written in pencil on the back is a day before your tragic accident. While I didn't know much about you when I was younger, I find it interesting that I later followed in your footsteps with law enforcement and the Illinois State Police. Thanks to Captain Kevin Shaughnessy for his efforts to honor our fallen Troopers at District 5. He asked me about a couple of our Troopers who had little information and no photo to represent them. My interest was sparked, and I am very proud to have been able to replace the "silouette" that represented you even at our Armory in Springfield, with a real photograph. A salute to you from your department, and a distant great nephew.
