Your heroism and service is honored today, the 144th 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. How proud you must be that your family continued your legacy of protecting and serving.

Crossing Patrolman Buckley, working as a Railroad Police Officer you faced dangers that many of us never even think of and you lost your life facing one of the most significant ones.

My Dad spent 5 years with the New York Central Railroad Police and has related stories of risks and dangers, but he's also told of the joy he had while there. I'm sure your family heard all those same types of stories, even though your careers were about 30 years apart.

You gave your life helping to protect one of America's most vital resources, the rails and you are not forgotten for your efforts or your sacrifice.

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

Thanks Grandpa. I often wondered where my desire for Law Enforcement came from. This is now my 44th year of Law Enforcement service. I never met you as your service ended in 1926 and I was born in 1933. I knew Nana (Grandma)and often visited her when I was growing up.I loved her very much. Your son, John retired from the N.Y.Transit Authority Police. I,m the son of your son William,Jr. Thanks for for being my Granpa. Your Grandson, Bob
