To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 82nd anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. 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.

My condolences to the members and family of the slain Chief. This is just another indication of the continuing social and moral decline of society.

Your tragic death greatly impacted the outcome of my family's history. I researched this crime to find answers to a dark family secret, but never found any peace. On behalf of the accused, I offer my sincerest apology and condolences. 75 years is a long time. God rest your soul and may your loved ones find peace that you are finally honored and remembered.
Respectfully,
