Your heroism and service is honored today, the 84th 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.

Time never dimishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered.

Wilfred is my grandfather, he had a daughter that was my mother. Her name was Lillian and she was 13 when her father was murdered. I was told many stories about what a wonderful man he was and I am so proud of him.

On today, the 80th anniversary of your murder, I would just like to say thank you to you and your fellow CO for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. There is no job in Law Enforcement tougher then that of a Corrections Officer.

Night Watchman Gerrior, today marks the 79th anniversary of your vicious murder. You died trying while trying to keep those who did not deserve to be amongst the general public, secure. Your efforts to watch over them and contain them have not been forgotten. You truly deserve the title hero.

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

I worked for several years in the old Infirmary Building, where this happened. What a snakepit!!! That building is long gone now, but you are not forgotten. Rest in peace!
