Reflections for Chief of Police John Raymond Nelson

Just as an historical note, Chief Nelson was succeeded by my great-grandfather, N. P. "Chub" Moore, who served as Constable and Chief of Police until 1932, when he died in office, probably of a cardiac event. His son, Delbert "Chub" Moore was appointed to succeed him and served until the offices were severed. He was appointed as Humboldt County Sheriff in 1949 and served until 1964 when he retired.

Chief Nelson,

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 90th 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 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.
