Officer Stephens,
On today, the 60th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Salisbury. 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 55th 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.

I want to say thank you to all those who pay tribute to my grandfather. He was gone long before I was born, but he still remains in my heart. I have always known his story, but until recently I didn't know about all the sites and memorials dedicated to him. Thank you for keeping his memory alive for all to know him.

Officer Stephens,

Though you were gone many years before I started, I walked that same alleyway that you did walking prisoners over to the commissioners office. Each time I drove through or walked a prisoner through that alley I thought of you and your family that you left behind and often times said a prayer for you. I hope that your family realizes that you will never be forgotten and it is my hope that the City of Salisbury and the Wicomico Sheriffs Office will someday build monument or dedicate roadways to you and Sheriff Samuel Graham and Deputy Albert Kelly in honor of the sacrifice you made for our community. May you all continue to rest in peace and know that your torches have been picked up and carried on. Thanks to you and your families.

When I was a rookie at SPD, they told us your story when training us in prisoner transport. I never knew your name before today. Rest in peace knowing that your story is still being used to train recruits to this day. Your sacrifice was not in vain, as I kept it mind every time I transported a prisoner.

I walk by that alley everytime I go to court...We're still keeping it safe.
