Trooper Van Antwerp, you were the officer on the scene at my Grandfather's auto accident during a rainstorm in Sharon Springs in September of 1931. Tragically,he was killed instantly at the age of 34. What a tragedy to see that you lost your life very young, as well. May you rest in peace. Thank you for everything you did that night to assist those who lived.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 79th anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to leave a tribute to you. 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.
