To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 54th 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 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

I pray for the solace of all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Lt. Truesdale,
On today, the 50th anniversary of your murder, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Pawtucket. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Happy Birthday sir. It has been 50 years since you received the wings you earned in heaven. But in those 50 years 3 of your offspring have chosen Law Enforcement as a career. Three
have followed in your footprints. Is a fitting tribute. Someone took your life but managed to help motivate 3 to
take your place. You I am sure are proud.
Rest in peace
