Your heroism and service is honored today, the 89th 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.

Time never diminishes respect. You will always be remembered and revered.

Rest In Peace

Though so many years have passed,and I never knew him, he was part of my Law Enforcement family and I will mourn this deep loss the rest of my life. My heart aches with all the losses we have suffered, and continue to suffer, through the years. God is our only peace in such incidents & our only real comfort comes from Him. May His strength, comfort & peace continue to be the sustaining force in the lives of all who knew this beloved officer; and may it somehow help to know that,even after all these years, he is respectfully remembered and his sacrifice deeply appreciated.

On today, the 86th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Detroit. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Based on data from the 1920 U.S. Census, Stephen Villaire was born in Canada, and emigrated to the United States in 1910. He was naturalized in 1915. His wife, Blanche, 31, was also Canadian. Their daughter, Alice, born in Detroit, was just three when her father was killed. The family home was at 487 Dickerson.
They are not forgotten.
