Rest in peace Officer Swierczynski, your bravery won't be forgotten. To undermine the American Justice System back in your day and your killers walked free, how appalling! A hero who God has received with open arms.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 90th 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 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.

I share your great grandsons' appreciation for this site
It is so important that our beloved family members and heroes never be forgotten. Maybe one day ninety years from now my son's great grandson will be posting a reflection for him. I am sure that you are proud that your descendents continued your legacy of protecting and serving.

Rest In Peace.
