When I came on the job in 1982 I was issued his shield number. Upon investigating the shield number, I learned of Patrolman Verity’s sacrifice. I was honored to serve under his shield.

My father told the story about uncle "Tex" many times as I was growing up. My fathers mother's sister was the wife of Milton E. Verity. Not until After I was an adult and started my family tree project did I know who he was, and how bravely he died. Both my brother and I chose careers in Law Enforcement, and the memory of his sacrafice never has been forgotten. It has been 40 years since loosing contact with the the rest of the Verity family. They can contact me at. Rest in Peace Uncle

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 80th 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.
