Your heroism and service is honored today, the 98th 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

Special Officer Pipes, you took a job to help protect one of America's most vital assets, it's railroads. A strike is a terrible thing for a number of reasons, no matter which side of the issues you're on. When tensions are high there's no telling what might result. Sadly in this case it resulted in injuries to some and death to you. You may have just started the job but you were knowingly walking into a very volatile situation and were willing to do the job. You are a hero.

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