Reflections for Deputy Sheriff John Oscar Johnson

I’m not exactly sure how I am related, but I think John Oscar was a great great uncle.
I want to add that there are several in John’s family tree that have taken this great profession of law enforcement.
I am now serving at 30 years as a deputy sheriff in Florida and now Georgia, I also have a brother that’s about to retire from the Secret Service.

On today, the 90th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Etowah County. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 80th 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.

Rest In Peace
