Deputy Sheriff Johnson,

On today, the 87th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army in Europe during WW I as a member of the 36th "Texas" Division. And to your family and a loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

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

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 84th 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

Deputy Sheriff Johnson was my uncle and the eldest of 12 Johnsons from the family of Bob and Betty Johnson. "Big Daddy" Bob was at the scene when "Brother" was killed. "Horace" was survived by his wife, Ella Maude who died in 1983, and son W.H., who died in 2010 at the age of 89. They are all buried at the Harlingen City Cemetery.

As a former LE Officer, I could imagine the excitement of Deputy Johnson for this joint operation. These brave officers are to be commended for putting themselves on the line to protect us, and Deputy Johnson remembered for his valor and dedication to duty this day. His family should be very proud. He was taken from us too soon.

Thank you for your service and your call to duty. Sadly my badge has been covered by the mourning badge too many times. But you serve deserve our gratitude and thanks.
