I was walking on Market Street, coming home from work a little after 5 o'clock PM, when I heard the shots from across the street. I ducked into the doorway of the printing company, Schwabacher-Fry. After the shooting stopped, I went across Market Street to the scene of the shooting and saw officer Walters and the robber lying on the sidewalk. Officer Walters had been directing traffic at the intersection of Market, Third, Geary and Kearney Streets. This happened when I was 17 and I have never forgotten what happened to Officer Walters. He was a brave man to his last breath! I am now 77.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 57th 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

No fellow California law enforcement personnel killed in the line-of-duty, should be forgotten.
