To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 68th anniversary year 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

Patrolman Costello, today marks the 63rd anniversary of your tragic death. Though I normally condemn those who cause the death of a Police Officer, I cannot condemn the man who caused yours as his death silenced his explanation. We may never know what caused this man to suddenly go berserk but regardless, he was being helped by a selfless, caring Police Officer. Your duty to the Railroad, its passengers and customers and the public in general is to be commended and praised. America’s railroads are one of the reasons this country is as great as it is and special women and men such as you helped make those railroads great.


You are also to be thanked for your service in the Great War. You are a hero.


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