Patrolman Walter Cavanagh, Badge number 1114, was my grandfather. He was killed when my father was 3 years old so I obviously didn’t have the chance to have even a distant memory. I have his nightstick and sometimes wonder what he was like when I see it. RIP, patrolman.

Patrolman Cavanagh, you were my great grandfather on my fathers side. He also wore the uniform for twenty years. Thank you for your service and may you both rest in the arms of the Angels.

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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace
