Reflections for Police Officer Charles Wilson

Charles Wilson was my great great grandfather. His son Robert Wilson was my great grandfather. I’m proud to say that he still has family growing all across Montana.
It’s so great to see that so many in his lineage have chosen to follow his path into law enforcement.

Be safe out there and always back the blue.

I knew I wanted to be a Cop since I was a young child. I graduated from the police academy in 2001. My mother gave me a copy of the B.P.O. Elks 246 "Northern Herd News" from Livingston, telling the story of Ofc. Wilson's death.

Ofc. Wilson was my Great Grandfather. My grandfather, Franklin G. Wilson, passed away in 1987 and I was too young for him to tell me anything about his father, or at least I don't recall any stories.

Nice to see other family members are LEOs. Stay safe out there!

Charles Wilson was married to my Aunt Minnie. His picture is displayed in the courthouse in Livingston, Montana. I think of the family when I go there.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 86th year 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 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. I am sure you are proud that your legacy of protecting and serving has been continued by your family.

Rest In Peace.

I did not know my great grandfather Charles Wilson, but I have followed in his footsteps and became a Police Officer. I just recently learned of how he was killed in the line of duty and it makes me proud to know that he was a very brave man and gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect others.
My grandfather was Joe Wilson (son of Charles) he also was a great man and served his country in WWII and in the Korean war, receving the purple heart and the bronze star for his bravery.
I am very proud to say that I am part of the Wilson Family and these two very special people have made me who I am today!

After 82 years, Mr. Wilson still has family in Livingston Montana. My family is well protected and taken care of in such a fine community. Thank You Livingston Police Department for all your hard working hours you put in for me and my surroundings.

My family has had many law enforcement officers in our family. But like all good families, we have our bad seeds. Last year, I learned of my families bad seeds...4th cousins to me...who were the sorry son's who murdered this fine man and two other police officers. On behalf of my family, I wish to express my sorrow and apologies to the descendants/relatives of this brave fallen public servant. For your info., one of the culprits was hanged in 1926 in Arizona while the other was released from prison in Texas in 1934...I do not know what happened to him.

Rest in Peace are not forgotten
