To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. I am privileged to pay tribute to you. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 47th anniversary year 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.

I wonder what our lives would have been like if we had grown up knowing you. It's strange to miss someone you never really knew.

I wish you would have lived long enough to have known you. Your eldest children, myself, Kristi, and Mike, have missed you without knowing you.
