Reflections for Night Watchman John Keifor Beauchamp

I was always in awe of my uncle John Keifor whom I never knew. His history from my father and other uncles made me know Keifor well. I was in Texas law enforcement for 35 years and have always thought his death and my fathers time as an officer in Rochester and Terry counties were the main reasons I became interested in law enforcement. Many in our family have served in law enforcement, over a dozen retiring from the profession over the years. Uncle Keifors name has not gone forgotten either as we have many John's and three or four Keifors (including his own son). Our family has forgotten him nor his sacrifice. He is buried at the Rochester Texas cemetery adjacent to two of his brothers and their families. He left us 95 years ago. He is listed on both the Texas Peace officers memorial and the Washington, D.C. memorial.

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.

Rest In Peace
