I remember losing you like it was yesterday. But what I remember fondly is sitting at the four mile marker having cool conversations about vintage cars while we both ran radar. You are so missed; and will never be forgotten.

I sit here at a little after 5 am some seven years after this Trooper's passing. I was a colleague of Trooper Manion's. i was facing pressure due to poor rumors as a recent transfer to his duty station. Trooper Manion approached me with nothing but encouragement. He told me he didn't believe any of the rumors he'd heard and further stated the people spreading them were rumored themselves to be disgruntled employees who had nothing better than to destroy me and my career.
This stands out with me to this day as I am 43 years of age. Manion, had he lived, would be 35. I'm grateful to had known him briefly as a former Virginia State Trooper colleague. Tpr. Manion is one of few bright-spots in my career as a Trooper in two states.

As I remember that day like it was yesterday, for it changed my life forever. I think back to that day I thought it was going to be just another day, another incident to mitigate but it turned out to be the most scariest day of my life. I know now, that God had you in the palm of His hands bringing you home and I know now, that He was looking over the four of us as we try to put together of what just happened. The first thirty seconds of talking to you that day I could tell that you served with Pride and Honor and that memory I will never forget...

I will continue to think about this day and prey for the Family you were called to leave behind.

To the Husband, the Dad, the Brother, the Son and the Friend I never got to know, may you rest in Peace and may your Family be Blessed with God's Favor.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 6th 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.


Your memory will always be honored and revered as time never diminishes respect. I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. I hold your family in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your friends for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.
