Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Henry Eugene Privett

Deputy Sheriff Privett,
On today, the 60th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army during World War II. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

60 years ago tonight, my 37 y/o father left for work at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, never to return home. He gave his life that night in the line of duty. I was 7, my sister was 10 and our mother was 30. Our lives were never the same. RIP Daddy. We love you.

I currently work for the Fulton County Sheriff's Office. I want the family to know that I still tell the other staff about Deputy Privett's sacrifice. We are keeping his memory alive. I never knew him and wish I knew more about his service.

In just a few hours, it will be 51 years since the death of my father. I was seven years old in 1962 and my sister was ten. What happened in the blink of an eye 51 years ago, still has a crushing, sickening feeling in my heart. Gone but not forgotten, indeed, Lt. Bernard McClarin. God bless you and keep you until we meet again.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 41rst 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
