Your heroism and service is honored today, the seventh 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.

I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. You are in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.

Dad Dave,
You are missed by many and never forgotten. Your memory and legacy are my drive and motivation to help your fellow brothers and other First Responders. Not a day goes by that you are not thought of or honored. 3 of your grandkids remember you for the love you gave them. It is hard to believe it has been 7 years. We miss you so much. And we love you.

As the day of your loss draws closer I reflect on alot of things that have changed since we lost you. I know I have made mistakes in life and I hope and pray you can forgive me for some of them. I tried my best to make amends and will continue to carry out your legacy of doing good and helping others in the community.
Your murderer is on trial and I pray it closes soon with a guilty verdict. It breaks my heart as I hear and see him try to pass blame. I remember the day we lost you with intense clarity and cry a lot. But I also remember the good times we shared as a family.
Allie still misses her Tata and wishes you were still here to drive your boat with her. We have the picture of the two of you out because she wanted it framed and she loves to look at it daily.
We all miss you so much. I often wonder how much different things would have been if you had not have been taken from us. Would they have taken the road they did? But we cannot linger on the past and so we move ahead on the paths we are destined to be on. And I know you walk with each of us even through the difficult times. You will always be our hero.
Please watch over Alyssa and Aisy. They both hurt so much still and if there was one thing I could give them if I could it would be one more day with their Daddy.
Love you Dad.

hey dad,
I don't even know where to begin, let alone end.Eventhough it has been four years i still feel the pain from you passing as if it was a recent know a lot of things have changed since you've been gone(im sure you have noticed).Aisy and I have been doing a fairly good job of keeping your headstone shiny.All that soap scum is not easy to remove:-)your case has been on trial and I've been trying to make it to everyone that i can. it's hard you know because i'm in school.idk dad i just really miss you a lot and i wish we could've had a closer relationship...adam does a good job making that apperent to me....Aisy and i are often left out of the loop you know, for dates to all the different memorial things the city puts together for you. and when we are told about them we are told the incorrect time. idk something is wrong though...i'm sure you know how i feel about all of them...and you know who's was the day the city was unvieling a sign marking where you last were =( and when me & aisy showed up the ceremony was over...i'm sorry i wsnt there earlier,nobody told me.and im your daughter....idk seeing all those people up there(getting media attention) who didnt even know you posing as the "uribe" family really upset me.but you know who really cares though dont you dad? i think you must have knew that aislinn and i would get treated so poorly from everyone,that's why you left certain things the same. i love you sooooo much and i hope we can talk sometime because there is a lot on my not scared anymore... ~~~~luv you always and forever!!!!~~~~~ your first youngest daughter!!!!!

Dear Dave,

On April 11, 2005 you were our Guardian Angel. My daughter and I were in a car accident and you were the responding officer. I was so lucky to have it be you. You took such good care of us and secured my car. You contacted my brother, Phoenix Detective Dan Strass and made sure he was at the scene and the hospital. A few days before your life was taken, you respresented us in court to ensure we were taken care of in that respect.
I was never able to thank you in person for all you did for me and Kristi. I watched from my office window as the Phoenix P.D. helicopters hovered over the cemetary while you were laid to rest for your last call. I am taking this time to say Thank you were great. You'll always have a special place in my memories of life.

To the whole Uribe family;

I know you've waited for this trial to begin for almost four years now... and today it finally has.

I can't yet imagine the pain of the memories of that day coming back during opening arguments and listening to someone defend the coward murderer.

Please know that the prayers of my entire family... and the prayers of the entire Valley... are with you today, just as they are every other day.

I always looked forward to the double squad days I rode with Dave. We never had a boring shift together. There was always a car chase, foot pursuit, DUI, robbery, felony warrant or other exciting moment. Police work with Dave was never boring. Dave was an extremely hard worker who lived and breathed for his family. He worked a lot of off duty so he could send his children to the best schools and so their mother could raise them on a full time basis. The Uribe home was beautiful and always immaculate. Dave was quite a handy man in the back yard. We were a pretty close knit squad in those days - Rosie, Ken, Sarah, Doug, Dave, Heather and I. I miss those times. I miss Dave!!

On May 10, 2005, David C. Uribe demonstrated the ultimate sacrifice, he gave himself! During his struggle he fought to stand by what he promised to commit to the citizens of Phoenix which is public safety. I want to personally thank you, the Uribe family for raising a man with the desire and passion to do what is right, to fight with all his might, and to leave a heroic legacy. James 1:12 states, "Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial for when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him." Please know that his life will always matter and thanks for the years of service, commitment, and dedication. To his son, I am proud to have been able to work with you at Maryvale Precint and being allowed to participate in the burial services. Continue your dad's legacy by setting the example daily, and learning to be the best no matter what life throws at us. Be a warrior, continue to be a soldier! Love the Rivera's, (Michael, Diana, Erica, and Michael Jr.)
