Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Bob Wallace

Deputy Sheriff Wallace,
On today, the 116th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you to you and your fellow Officers who were also killed in that incident for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Colbert County.

A just end to a filthy scum. Kudos to the Alabama State Militia in this case for not allowing this animal the chance to ever kill again.

Deputy Wallace, you are a true hero. God Bless you and may your rest be forever peaceful.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 107th 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 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.

This truly must have been one of the darkest days in law enforcement history. What a devastating blow this must have been to the families and agency.

On the anniversary of his death, we paused to honor and remember Deputy Wallace and acknowledge the ultimate sacrifice he paid.

May he and his fellow deputies never be forgotten.

I cannot even begin to express my sadness over what I am sure is one of the deadliest days in law enforcement in Alabama history. These brave men will always be remembered for their courage and sacrifice. Rest in peace always.

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003).

We all grieve over the lives lost in the line of duty. I hope you can find some comfort knowing that there are countless prayers that go out for your family.

Deptuty Wallace, you are remembered on this date of your death. You will always be remembered.

These are senseless tragedies that never seem to stop. God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....
