Your heroism and service is honored today, the 79th 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.

Rest In Peace.

I have the privildge of owning the Blackman Farm. For many years family and guests experienced a kind presence in the home. However over theyears it seems this occurrs less and less. Maybe Reuben, or his wife Daisey were not ready to go on. I have many of Reuban's hand tools found about here and there and I feel somewhat of a kinship when using them. Up and down the road the farm is still known to the old timesr as the "Blackman Place".

I have the priviledge of owning the Bkacman Home, and farm. Many hand tools that belonged to Reuben are sevricable and still used by me. I feel a kinshiop when using them. For many years there was a presense in the home, a kind entity or entities experianced by many guests as well as my immediate family. In the last few years these occurrances have lessened a lot. Maybe Daisey, Reubens' wife was there, or Rueben, or both! I don't know. But after all these years the farm is still known locally as the Blackman place.
