The outlaws that gunned you down robbed your family of your strong presence and you of ever seeing your child born 6 months later. Stories of you and granny have been passed through 5 generations and continue to draw the family close. You will forever be remembered.

You honor all that serve in law enforcement and add to our respect of the good guys.

Your sacrifice at the hands of such filth is honored here, Deputy Garlick. To compound your vicious murder with such pathetic sentences is disgraceful.

We can only hope and pray that they all faced true justice, if not in this world, then in the next.

God Bless and I pray you are resting peacefully on this 102nd anniversary of that sacrifice.

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 96th 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.

Deputy Sheriff Garlick,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of El Paso County. It sickens me that your murderers didn't get any real punishment.
