George Vierra was my grandfather although he died many years before I was born. His sacrifice has never been forgotton by his two granddaughters and great-granddaughter. The story of his courage was passed along to us by his son, Howard Vierra. His photograph and a poem written at the time of his death by his niece have a special place in my home. His badge was returned with pride to the Hayward Police Department by my sister.
We honor George Vierra and all others who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

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

My Grandfather,Fabian E.Macabee,former Hayward P.D. Chief(1943-1944) worked with George from Dec.1,1926 when Hayward P.D. was first formed. On the day George Vierra was killed by Vincent Cataldo, Fabian, who was also involved in the fire fight,later wrote that Cataldo was taken prisoner after a three hour gun battle with 50 police and sheriff deputies.It should also be noted that, retired (2002) Napa County Under Sheriff, Richard Lonergan is a nephew of George Vierra.George Vierra, may you rest in peace.
