Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Benjamin F. Holland

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 119th 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.

Deputy Holland was the son-in-law of my great great grandfather, William Houghton Trimble, who settled in Fannin County Texas in the late 1850's. I was not aware until a few years ago that Deputy Holland and I are related. Thanks to a retired Dallas County Deputy I'm proud to be aware of that fact. It's an honor to have the opportunity to recognize a fallen officer and it was an honor to have represented the Fannin County Sheriff's Office at the Texas Peace Officer Memorial ceremony in 2005 that recognized Deputy Holland.

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....
