Reflections for Patrol Officer Marion E. Taylor

I was born 21 years after your “End of Watch”. You would have been my Great Uncle. Unfortunately I never met you or your brother, my Grand Dad, because he passed away one month after my birth. From the stories I have been told, you and my Grand Dad were both great men and I wish I would have met you both.

I look at your photo each time I pass it at the PD. I study your face and I think your last day may have started like today. This ritual keeps me alert, and brings me home to my family.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 74th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was murdered on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace.

I am sorry I never got to know you. I was born 5 months after your death, but I know I would have loved you because you were my grandfather's brother, and he was my favorite person in the world. I will never forget how much he ment to me as a child.
