Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Arthur Yeary

Although I was only 5 years old at the time I can still remember the feelings of tragedy, loss and fear that surrounded that day. The day you made the ultimate sacrifice was the day I realized for the first time that evil things can happen in this world.

I called him "uncle Arthur" as he was my step grand father. As kind and generous as one could be. He was a cook in WWI and came back to Athens as the town Marshall. I remember well his sirean going off at night so all would turn off lights as Barksdale Bombers would fly over and drop flower bags where they saw a light. My son has the last bullet that was left in his gun.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

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.

Time never dimishes respect, and your memory will always be honored and revered
