To the father that I never really knew, you are missed every day! The nightmare was just two months before my 4th birthday and this month I reach my 63rd. I know that you would be proud of your kids, grandkids and great grandkids......we are all very proud of you! It saddens me deeply to hear of another officer loosing his/her life while serving the communities they love, because I know first hand the sorrow their families will carry for the remainder of their lives. Daddy, you were and are loved!

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 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.

Rest In Peace.

Thank you uncle Clarence for your service to the community.
I will always remember you, my dad, your son Bobby and I going to catch minnows and ended up with leaches on our feet. MY God rest your soul.
