This was my great grandfather and the first Midland police officer to fall in the line of duty. His sacrifice went unnoticed for over 7 decades. I am proud of him, and so proud that my father was able to be at the service honoring him before he passed away. Thank you so much for his place in history being written! May God be with the families, friends and police brethern, of all the officers who have given their lives to protect us, and with the officers who continue to protect us now! My Father has since passed away. I was and am so very proud of them both. And to all the fallen that have come since my grandfather. Thank you to the officers that found this information for my family.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 76th 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

I read this in the Midland Reporter-Telegram dated 12.16.07, and I leave in Dallas. It is never too late to honor all of our Police Officers. I want to thank Officer Aaron Smith and everyone involved for their endless research to finally honor Officer Wyrick. I do not have a loved one that is a Dallas Police Officer but know a few. I try to attend our fallen officers day each year in Dallas. To all the Officers out there, THANK YOU for your training, your families and your service to us all.
