I'm wondering if this is the Clyde Minor I served in the Army with in Fulda, Germany in 1982 - 1983. That Clyde was a very nice, kind and friendly person. If anyone can provide me with an answer I would be grateful.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 15th 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. I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

I remember seeing you & Cpl Padgett #67 riding your motors in parades and the run to the wall - it was a very sad day when I learned of your passing - and still 12 yrs later we still talk so fondly of the big man with the calming voice...Rest now for your watch is over.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Merry Christmas.
I often think about you and your family.
God bless you.

I remember as a kid riding my bike on the way to the local swimming pool and passing by your house. I would see your police car & even sometime your motorcycle. You would sometimes say hello and I would say to myself "Man he's HUGE" Over time I got the courage to stop and talk to you and man that was really cool. You were so nice and I remember telling my parents about you. I would always point out your police car (#109) to my parents when we saw you driving around.

I guess what I really want to say is, I'm sorry & extremely sad that you passed away. I cried for several days 11 years ago reading what happen to you. I only wish my children could have met you.

I continue to pray for you and your family. Thanks again for a life time of memories.

Rest in Peace Motorman. You are not forgotten.

Sgt. Minor,
I remember you when I was a young kid. They called you "Tiny" and I could not believe that anyone could call you that, since you such a big man, but a polite and caring man. You and my dad served together with the CCSO. My dad's name is Mel. You know him well, as he does you. Since growing up, I have become a police officer in DE. I remember when I recieved the phone call from my dad, about your death, and could not believe it. I am sorry this has happened to such a great man. May you rest in peace and I am sure that you are looking over your family.

Tim - 109

I remember how fond and proud you were of being a Motorman, and of riding together to parades, funerals, and other events. Your ever present smile and easy going dispositon is a constant memory. If there are Harleys in Heaven, I know that you are on patrol. Rest in Peace. 80
