Reflections for Officer J. F. Leo Shaab

Uncle Leo was my mothers brother. She was born in 1907 and died in 2007. A very healthy 100. She was my perfect mom for 61 years! She always told me the exact story I just read here. I remember his widow. He also had a younger brother, William Shaab. My Uncle Bill! A wonderful,kind man,very religious who never married. Just the three of them from Elkridge,Md.
Sorry I never met Uncle Leo,but I heard wonderful stories from his siblings.
Rest in Peace Uncle Leo.

Jane Hurd
Leo Shaab's niece.

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.
