To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 83rd 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.

Special Agent Willis, on behalf of the people of America, thank you for being a hero. The way you died, brutally gunned down by some lowlife trash is not what made you a hero, it was watching over and protecting the railroad. The Depression was an especially tough time for railroad cops but you did your job, knowing that those rail yards were part of what made America great and would help make America great again. That is what made you a hero. We can only hope that the scum who did you in faced true justice, if not in this life, then in the next.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
