Your heroism and service is honored today, the sixty-first 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.

Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace

Grandfather died in Jan. 1951 working for Maricopa County, AZ after retiring from the Denver, CO police department. I was born in 1948 and never knew my Grandfather. Years ago I spoke with persons who worked with grandpa and was told that my grandfather was a great police officer and good man. As I prepare for retirement after 35 years as a law enforcement, I can only hope that I made Grandpa proud as I followed in his footsteps and carried on the mission that he dedicated his life to. Your Loving Grandson, David
