To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 102nd anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. 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.

The obituary at the time of your death was so touching to read these many years later.

To the family of Deputy Walace Cool,

I served as a Deputy Sheriff for two years in Latah County, and those are some of the fondest memories for me. Having served in this agency made me a better law enforcement officer and I thank Deputy Wallace Cool and his family for his selfless service. His valiant courage is not without notice and serves as a template for the many more serving deputies to follow. We honor you and it is my pleasure to have worn the same badge and patch as you. Undoubtedly, the coward who seized your life did so at the expense of your family, Latah County's fine citizens, and of your young life. Your cavalry mount was so that others may live in Peace and we Thank You for your service.

From the Genesee News, August 9, 1901: Mr. Cool was a generous, active and popular young man and identified himself with every laudable move advancing the best interests of our city and community. He contributed money for every good enterprise and materially assisted in carrying out the wishes of the people. He never refused a hungry man a meal, no matter if he did not have a penny about him. His friends were equal in amount with his acquaintances.
