Your heroism and service is honored today, the 49th 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.

Time never dimishes respect, not even 49 years.

Rest In Peace

Dear Officer Taylor,
I vaguely remember the news of your tragic death. I was 5 1/2 yrs old at the time, and we were visiting my grandparents, who lived near the crashsite. Back then, if I recall correctly, E.Livingston Ave. deadended at S.3rd St. at a stone wall. (I'm curious...can anyone reading this remember if the speeder was ever apprehended? I don't think so...but would like to know.)
Your community honors your courage and sacrifice.
Sleep well my brother.
