The Sheriffs of Florida and their deputies will never forget the sacrifice you and your family made to uphold our laws and protect society.

Your name has been inscribed on the Florida Sheriffs and the National Law Enforcement Memorial and in our hearts. May you forever rest in peace.

A scripture inscribed on the Florida Sheriffs Law Enforcement Memorial:

"Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called the children
of God." Matthew 5:9

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 85th 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 dimishes respect, not even 85 years.

Rest In Peace

It is amazing where I come across family members on the internet. And to think I've lived the last 20+ years right down the road. You will never be forgotten. All good deeds are remembered and honored.

I never knew you, but I heard of you from my wife Laura, who heard about you from your sisters, especially Mimee. I have visited the place where your mortal remains are buried. I think it was terrible what happened to you. I am glad that your killer did not live for very long afterward, and I hope that also gives you some solace. I know that you were a good man, a good Christian and God fearing man. I feel sure that Laura and I will both meet you one day, and I will feel honored to meet you then.

I stumbled upon this memorial page by doing an O'Berry search. Once I found it, I was touched by William Henry's story and proud to be related to this officer. His father was first cousin to my Great Grandfather Solomon H O'Berry.
I am also proud to be a decendant of a Pioneer of Pasco County as was William Henry through his Grandfather James Ransom O'Berry.

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want,
His comforting hand reduces fear to naught;
He makes me walk through streets of crime,
But He gives me courage and peace of mind

He leads me by still waters in the path I trod,
And He says in Romans, I’m a “minister of God,”
He leads me in righteousness as He restores my soul,
For His name’s sake He keeps me whole.

When I walk through death’s valley, right up to the door,
I will fear no evil, for He comforts me more;
For Thou art with me every step of the way,
As thy rod and thy staff protect me each day.

He prepares a table, especially for me,
As I work daily among life’s enemies;
He gives me authority to uphold the law,
And He anoints my position in the midst of it all.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me,
Each day of my life through eternity;
As I long to hear Him say, “Well done…”
When I lay down my life, my badge, and my gun.

Rest in Peace, Brother…
