Reflections for Night Policeman Arucius R. Koon

No passage of time will ever erase your service and sacrifice.. Rest In Peace always.

Jun 28, 2018: Arucius Koon was my great grandfather. He was the father of my grandmother, Della Koon Barton. He was the grandfather of my father, Beverly James Barton, born in 1918 when Beverly was still a man's name. To read that Arucius was killed in the line of duty in 1894 is stunning. My father was in law enforcement in the 1970s, the details of which are unclear to me. My father was shot 3 times in his life, survived them all, but still took a toll. To all the other officers and families who left tributes, thank you for your thoughtfulness and sacrifices. To those who are distant cousins, I would love to be in contact with you. I am 70 years old and have one sister left who is 76. Time's a wastin'!

You will never be forgotten, for I have just found you. Not only are you my brother by profession you are also my Great Grand Uncle by blood. And I too wear a sheriff badge for the past 17 years. Your service and sacrifice will forever bring pride to your family.

God Bless you.....

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and sixteenth 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.

Rest In Peace
