Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Charles Aubrey Fisher

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

I am so sorry for this loss to the entire blue community in Portsmouth, especially our beloved sheriff's department, and in particular Lt. Cherry, who has now lost two brothers in blue to motorcycle accidents. May Dep. Fisher's legacy live on in the lives he saved by donating his organs.

To say that he was my brother would only deminish the relationship that we enjoyed. We spent 9 years together serving arrest warrants in the city and as my partner I never felt concerned for my safety, because Charlie had my back. We spent 7 years together working dailey to built a business that because successful because Charlie had my back. As I still work the streets, I feel his presents, because Charlie still has my back. I miss you my Brother.

Well, it's been six years now since your last ride, coming on I264 at Portsmouth Blvd. and each time I ride by I give you a silent salute & a prayer for your family & friends that were left behind.

The Memorial sign that we dedicated for you at the site of the accident is still reflecting the lights, just as your memory does for those of us you left behind when you took that final ride that ended your last shift here. It was my privilege to pray at the dedication of a sign for your family & friends to honor you.

The Portsmouth Sheriff's Academy building is named after you and your motor helmet and fender pf your bike are displayed. Each year Sgt. Jeff Wilson goes up to Washington DC for the annual Memorial Bike Ride and visit to the monument and he places flowers in your memory so you are not forgotten here.

Rest in peace fellow Deputy and LEO Brother as we carry on for you and all of those who gave so much to keep us free.

It has been 4 years but feels like yesterday! I miss you and love you so much! You were my dad, my best friend, my riding buddy, and my shoulder to cry on! You always knew what to say and do in tough times! Your grandson is 5 years old now and you would be so proud of him! He asks about you all the time and it breaks my heart that you could not be here to enjoy him becoming a fine little man! We talk and think about you everyday! I know you are in a better place but it doesn't make it any easier! I hope you are riding up there in heaven! We will all be together again one day! As for now I try to keep my Faith and honor you all the time! I love you daddy!

When times were tough you were there like my father. You gave the best advice and didn't take my complaining. Its been over 3 years and seems likes yesterday. I would give anything for you to call me a goofy bastard one more time! Thanks for your friendship and yes, I am still riding!

Love you brother!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the third 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. Rest In Peace.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Since the first discovery of this nation at Jamestown in 1607, people of all backgrounds have been protected, and served by those willing to take on the task few would accept.
By the steel of your character, the unwavering of your resolve, and the devotion of your duty, the land now known as the City of Portsmouth continues safer, quieter and comforted thanks to the sacrifice of your service.
My Brother, you will not be forgotten. Your memory lives on in the rest of us, a gentle reminder and a call to serve just as you did. Rest in peace, never forgotten.

Charlie you were a one of a kind friend and deputy. I had the chance to meet you when you went through the training academy.
You made a lasting mark in my life. Although we didn't talk much the last few years, I hold the time I spent with you and your family dear to my heart.
My prayers are with your family, friends, and the Portsmouth Sheriff's Office.
God Bless You My Friend.

My dad was a great man and my best friend. He was my riding buddy and my listener and shoulder to cry on! He was always there for me and I miss him greatly! I know he is with his maker up above and no harm can be done to him and one day I will see him again but it is just not the same! Thank you everyone for your care, concern, and your support! I love you all!!!

The Badge

It is polished and shiny and looks so fine.
Once you earn it you have to tow the line.
The minute you wear it upon your chest
it becomes a symbol that you are the best.
It means honesty, integrity, and fairness to all.
Your life is never your own, but at the publics call.
Night or day, any hour, it makes you a mark.
It doesn't protect you from a shot in the dark.
Over the years the shine starts to fade,
but brighter still is the man its made.
It is often what separates you from the crowd.
It is a second family of which you are proud.
So now comes your time, you can't be denied.
When you pin on your badge, wear it with pride
The minute you wear it upon your chest
it becomes a symbol that you are the best.

RIP Brother
