Your heroism and service is honored today, the 65th 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 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.

Detective Sgt. Yancey, it's been 60 years since your life was taken in a tragic accident. My Dad worked for the New York Central railroad for several years, the last 5 as a cop and he's told me a number of stories describing the risks you folks face. You showed true courage in going out there doing the job, protecting one of the mainstays of the American economy, despite the risks. You are a hero and my heart goes out to all those who survived you. I truly believe that though you left them physically, you never truly left them

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