A Hero in Heaven, always remembered and never forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 70th 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.

feel real bad, in this case for both men though more for officer Moore and his loved ones. Since I just dicovered this site, i don't feel I have much to write specifically, at present. Only some personal info that I was born, raised, and, though living in other areas, a big part of my heart never really left W-B. My genealogy research reveals numerous Phillips' ancestors were policemen, particularly my gr-grandfather Jabez and at least one son,etc. paternal grandmothet Hannah was d/o granddaughter of Hugh Harkins who died in W-B in October 1911. I think some of his kids/grand kids, etc. may have served, though I'm less certain. Fire dept. seems to me but both is possible,obviously.
Re:Officer Moore, he died a hero working to protect his community and I trust, also fervently pray that he rests happily in God's healing Hands as well as any loved ones who have joined him. Finally, continued divine consolation for those, indeed, ALL those who must put themselves in danger and whose loved ones,(actually all those whom God decides), are worthy of His loving care.
RIP John, and I think you clearly know better than i that you are in a far better place albeit what appears to have been the terribly sudden way it sounds to me that you were called to your Divine reward. Surely, your trgedy should be a booster lesson to what I first remember learning from my religous teachers of my Lord Jesus wise admonition.
Again, may God continue keeping and loving you.
Distant relative or not, in all sincerity,

Sir, sixty five years ago you left us far too young serving the people of Pennsylvania. Know that today and everyday you will be remembered.
