Det. Sullivan,
On today, the 90th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Navy during World War I.

Joe Sullivan was my father's cousin, they were very close being the same age and living next door to each other along with going to school together. Our family was deeply saddened our loss and remember him as our hero .

A policeman had been taken hostage and as they started to drive away with him Joe jumped on the running board of the car shooting the driver and the other bad men. The car crashed killing Joe but the young policeman was saved. He left behind his wife and a family that still, today, thinks of him and remembers him with love and fondness.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 79th 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
