It may be 125 years since that day but your ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten. Law enforcement will never allow your name to be forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and twenty first 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

Detective Kreigh, today marks the 119th anniversary of your murder. Thanks to you and your partner for your efforts in protecting America's Railroads. It wasn't then, and it isn't now an easy job, but thankfully there are those willing to do it. Your sacrifice was not in vain.

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

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003). Unfortunately, I had to add the name of another friend recently. Deputy Jeffery Hewitt, Buncombe County (NC) Sheriff’s Department, E.O.W. April 4, 2004.

I want to honor all of those who gave their life in the line of duty. Although your death was many many years ago, you are still a hero.

God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....
