Your heroism and service is honored today, the 60th anniversary year 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 diminishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered

My father was also at this accident. While he was seriously injured your actions probably saved his life as well. You have my undying gratitude. Thank you for your sacrifice.

It's been many , many years since your death, but never too late to offer a reflection. Although you were only a Police Officer for 5 days...your heroic deed shows what kind of person you were. Continue to Rest in Peace, Officer Thatcher...you were a true hero.
