Your heroism and service is honored today, the 106th 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 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.

Captain Creeden,

I have no idea wether you and I are related, but it is possible because I have family in and around the metro Boston area.

At any rate, thank you for your service to the city of Newburyport.

Your namesake,
Patrick Creeden
