Especially now that the serial numbers exceed 10,000, all whose watch ended too early should never be forgotten. We who were lucky enough to retire and live on really appreciate these reminders of those
whose tragically didn't.

Thanks to everyone for your kind words of remembrance. Patrolman Benedict was my wife Holly's paternal grandfather's brother. I showed her all of the reflections left in honor of her great uncle and she was deeply touched.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 73rd 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 diminishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace
