I always hear stories of your great sacrifice. I am honored to be part of your family and now a police officer myself. My grandfather Jimmy Walls and you were great men of honor. I hope that I can keep the tradition going for many years to come.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 58th 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.
