Deputy Ray was my great-uncle. My mother's father's oldest brother. My grandfather, John Henry Ray, was only 12 at the time of his brother's death. Charlie's death was such a shock to his mother and grandmother that they both died within two months. Charlie's father, Hiram Ray, having died 5 years earlier, my grandfather was left an orphan and was raised by his sister, Kittie Ray Henderson. My mother, Marjorie Ray Haun, passed away in Dec. 2011.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and seventeenth 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.
