To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 92nd anniversary year 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

Agent Artz it is no wonder we have one of the most difficult and dangerous jobs in law enforcement. We patrol alone, respond alone and most of the time handle problems alone. Back up is not always an option. You were doing your job when you were taken from this world. Not many can do this job, you did. Rest easy my friend we will take it from here. God bless you my brother.

Special Agent Artz, on this 88th anniversary of your murder at the hands of scum, I want to thank you for your efforts on behalf of the Rock Island Railroad. The railroad is one of the reasons that this country is a great as it is today and it was/is special people like you that keep it as safe as it is. Yes, in this day and age, the protection of the rails seems to have taken a back seat in the overall economic cost of running a railroad, brave men and women still take up the cause. For that I am grateful.

You did your job and you did it to the best of your ability regardless of any risk and for that you are a hero. Your sacrifice has not been forgotten.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
