Deputy Pate
Their are no words that can thank you for your service. You gave your life so that we could live ours. The man who killed you ( I won't write his name ) was made out to be some sort of hero, he was a killer nothing more. Rest in peace knowing their were many who attempted to live up to a person such as you. We will never forget.

Deborah: i agree totally. Society always lifts up the criminals and the true heroes are relegated to pages like this. Your great uncle, was truly great. He served at the cost of his own life.
My father was a policeman in Birmingham, AL. He saw so much action that it affected him greatly until he passed on.
Your uncle is not forgotten!

I never had the honor of knowing my great uncle. His daughter Ellen was married to my uncle George Booker Stevens. I know for a fact that aunt Ellen never forgave Carbine Willams for her father's death and felt he was exhonerated. Today the story of Carbine Williams is on TMC..a movie full of misconceptions. They even have a made of name for my uncle Alford. I was thrilled to find Uncle Alford was remembered on this website. Thank you for your service Uncle Al.

I am gratified to see this one posting. Alfred J. Pate was my Great Grandfather. Of his two daughters, Estell Pate Stewart was my Grandmother. As in the previous posting, I never had the honor of knowing him, but he was adored by both my Grandmother and her sister Ellen Pate Stevens.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 89th 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 who was murdered in 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.

Rest In Peace.

As a U. S. commisioned field grade officer:I will not allow Your memory to be forgotten when a cop-killer like ex-convict David M. "Carbine" Williams, is revered for inventing a U.S. military rifle.....May You Rest - In - Peace.

No fallen officer deserves to be without a reflection. I am honored to be the first to leave one.

Your life, Deputy Sheriff Pate, shall never be forgotten. Thank you for your service.
