Reflections for Town Constable John Stough Stroup

Constable Stroup,
On today, the 100th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Four Oaks. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I am so pleased to see that you are being honored for your sacrifice for your community. You left behind a wife, two children and an unborn child. That unborn child was my mother and she regretted that she never had the opportunity to know you. You would be proud to know that your oldest grandson served as a law enforcement officer for over 25 years. Rest in Peace.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 93rd 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.

Time never dimishes respect, and your memory will always be honored and revered. .

Rest In Peace
