Sir, we put up a memorial sign at the location of your murder last week. 106 years is a long time, but you are not forgotten. Today men and women in the same blue suit are passing by your sign, as they are out there fighting the same evil men who took your life 106 years ago. Rest in peace sir, may you never be forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 101rst 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.

Rest In Peace

Capt. Auble - I have probably passed the scene of your death a thousand times, yet not fully known your story beyond the engravings upon our memorials. We carry on, as you would expect us to, in your memory.
