Your heroism and service is honored today, the 58th 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. You must have been very proud that your son continued your legacy of protecting and serving.

Rest In Peace

I am proud to be associated with with these men who protect Americans so we can feel safe and secure as we go about our daily life. They help make this country the best place to live. I was born in 1962 when Mercer Jr. was still in high school. I was adopted to another family and had the privelege to meet Mercer Jr. as an adult. My daughter was born September 23 1994, exactly 40 years after her great grandfather's death.

Officer Weiskotten,

I was born the day you died, and I have spent the past 30+ years trying to arrest as many drunk drivers as possible (and dealing with the carnage they cause, too).

Rest in peace.

The son of this fallen policeman, as I knew him as an officer was exemplary. I think his dad would have been very proud of him.

While I did not get to spend much time with my father, I was 11 at the time of his death and he worked two jobs. I was priviledged to have enjoyed a one week fishing trip to Canada with him in August of 1954 (one month before his death). He had recently built a new home for us in the Mountain View section of Syracuse. There were not the wrongful death suits then that we see now and growing up it was difficult for us as my mother was a teacher and times were hard. Choosing to work in goverment service, I followed in his career field through the example he set for me.
