Your heroism and service is honored today, the 40th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Larry was born the same day that you were killed and I like to think he continued the legacy you left that day of protecting and serving.

Rest In Peace

Pete, God give you rest my brother. I was a New Orleans Police Officer with you. All those years ago, on that darkest of nights, I was there. You were a better Officer than I ever was. You were a better man than I will ever be. I'm still standing the watch with you as my role model. Brothers - Jerry

Pete, I was working overtime as a dispatcher when this happened. I recall the radio transmissions as though it was yesterday. When the hospital notified us later that you had departed for a better place, the broadcast was made on all 6 channels by the Police Chaplain. The radios all stayed quiet for what seemed to be hours. Later P.A.N.O., Policeman's Association of New Orleans was formed and your badge, #1544, was accepted as the official emblem for the association. It is still used today on all letterheads and decals. It was an honor to have known you as a hero then, and today you are still a hero in my mind and heart. Save a place for me next to you when God calls me.
