Always jovial with a very optimistic attitude; Tom was also capable of tremendous concentration, focus, and single minded tenacity.
My closest interaction with Tom was on the shooting range where I helped him overcome the same vision problems which plague me. He exhibited an ability to bring undivided attention to the task at hand.
His unbridled enthusiasm for life and work is missed by all who were privileged to know him.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the third 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.

I pray for solace for all that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.
