Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Joe Trapolino

Deputy Sheriff Trapolino,
On today, the 91st anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army in Europe fighting the Germans during WW I as a member of the 36th "Texas" Infantry Division. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

The legacy of the wonderful life you lived is still remembered and cherished by your family. Your service during WW I with the 111th Field Signal Battalion in the U.S. Army's 36th Infantry Division in combat in France, your 18 years with the Harris County Sheriff's Dept. and the wonderful family you raised is shared with every generation since you were called home by the Lord at the age of 41. Your loving grandson, Michael Joseph Guarino.

Rest in Peace Deputy Sheriff Joe Trapolino. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of Harris County, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and the men and women of the Harris County Sheriff's Department. I also Pray that the hounds of hell forever pursue the scum that murdered you. May he know no peace in the after life. May his grave be infested with thorns and weeds. May he burn forever in the lake of fire!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 76th 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 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.
