Your heroism and service is honored today, the 105th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

Patrolman Sturdivant,
On today, the 103rd anniversary of your murder, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Boston.

Patrolman Sturdivant, today marks the 103rd anniversary of your sad, tragic death at the hands of a mad woman. I notice you were 47 at the time of your death. I’m 47 now. It’s little things like that make one pause and contemplate what could happen on any given shift. You are a hero, not because you died in the line of duty, but because you DID your duty for 15 long years and under conditions far from those of today’s police officers.

Thank you for your service, God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

His heroic actions on that long ago day are still a shining example to all who have takent the oath and put on a badge. All of our shifts today are dedicated to this hero firmly believing that this hero should be forgotten to history.
