You were my first hero. As a 6 year old not-too-distant cousin, I attended your memorial services, also a first for me. I knew the circumstances of your heroic action, as do my wife, children, and grandchildren. Your memory lives on. Thank you.

You were laid to rest fifty years ago, but this will be the first anniversary of your death where your companion, wife, and mother of five children lay beside you. I pray you are enjoying watching your family grow from heaven since you were unable to do so on earth. RIP WJS and BJS

Someone who misses you dearly

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 50th anniversary year 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.

Phyllis Lasater Loya
mom of fallen Pittsburg (CA) officer Larry Lasater

You faced the challenge, answered the call to arms. You passed the test and took care of business. Your actions are an example to all of us still left in your place.

Rest well.

I know time has healed some of the wounds your loved ones feel, but you will never be gone from their hearts.

God bless.

I knew this officer as he served in my home county. He conducted the driving test when I obtained my divers license. Rest in peace one of West Virginia finest.
