Rest in peace and Olav Hashalom Patrolman Lefkowitz. Your courage and bravery won't be forgotten. My dad, may he rest in peace was a New York City Policeman for thirty-eight years with the 102nd precinct. He belonged to the Shomrim association down in Florida where I still make my home with our family.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 88th 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 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.

Because of my great-grandfather, Max Lefkowitz, was killed it forever changed my family.My grandfather grew up without his father and then my father and his brother grew up without having a real chance to get to know their grandfather. It was such a tradgedy it was not talked about in my family and it was my cousin who found this information and her father my Uncle Don who supplied me with the history involved. One person's death does impact a family for generations to come. My great-granfather will not be forgotten thanks to your agency and the information still available to me by surviving family members who will talk about it. My grandfather was so deeply effected it made him question his belief in God losing his father in this way.Thank you to my great grandfather I will not forget you nor will my child now age 22. I am age 50 and so will be around awhile longer to keep your memory alive.You were loved and very brave and loyal in your duty as a patrolman on the force.

My name is Jamie lefkowitz.
I am the daughter of Donald lefkowitz (born 1937)from Pittsburgh, PA.
I was born in 1958 in Pittsburgh, PA.
I now reside in California.
Max lefkowitz was my great grandfather.
I never met him.
I just learned this year, from my father, (I am 48) that my great grandfather was murdered in the line of duty.
I feel sad about his death, but I am proud that my great grandfather was protecting and serving his community.
Thank you Grandpa Max for being so brave!
May you rest in peace for all eternity.
