Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Henry Yates

My father-in-law remembers this as his older sister was a witness to this shooting and had to testify in court. My father-in-law saw the mob coming to get the police chief after the shooting as this deputy was well liked ! Officer Mayfield Bremerton Police Department 442

Deputy Sheriff Yates,
It has taken over 77 years, but you are finally being honored. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Russell County.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 78th 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.

Rest In Peace.
