Reflections for Patrolman Lester M. Chace

Patrolman Chase, it has been 91 years since you were taken from us. New England law enforcement has continued to thrive, learn and become safer due to the traditions and sacrifices you, your family, and many others have made for us. Thank you for your law enforcement service.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 80th 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. You will always be remembered and revered.

Rest In Peace

On today, the 75th anniversary of your death, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Wareham.

Patrolman Chase, today marks the 75th anniversary of your tragic death. I can only speculate at what transpired between you and the man who struck you (apparently not deliberately) as he drove you all over town trying to get help. The accident at that construction site is a reminder to all of us that we cannot control everything and bad things can happen, no matter how careful we are.

Though your family lost your body to the Earth, I believe they kept your spirit with them always and that to this day, Wareham is a better place for your being there.

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

Ptl. Jim Leahy, Jr.
