Thank you all for your kind and powerful tributes to my grandfather. I never knew him, but I grew up with his legacy of integrity and service. His family and community vividly remember and love him. I would like to add a photograph of him to this page, but I don't think I can. Thank you all for your service and dedication as well.

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 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.
